    Briz, I'm new to v8buick.com, but I have been following this engineering and install with great interest. I have a '65 Skylark with suspect tail lights and turn signals. You mentioned that you knew of a Skylark setup for LED tail lights/ turn signals, and that you put a similar unit in your Riv. Is this a LED strip board setup as opposed to the LED bulb setup? I don't necessarily need the Sequential aspects of the United Pacific harness modified. Can you make a recommendation based on your experience?
    Thanks.

    This company had boards for the 70 - 72 A body cars. https://digi-tails.com/

    This company has a kit I used on the Riv and uses plug in bulbs with a digital flasher relay http://www.mustangproject.com/ProductDisplay.aspx?ID=43ac026a-7a20-459f-bd09-266ed8355e33

    Still in the middle of rewiring the whole car, but here is a picture of them lit up. You'll have to wait another weekend or two for me to get the wiring done to get a video of the sequential turn signal.

    I thought the side turning on for BRAKE should not be sequential at all,
    3 lights come on at once? The 68 used a motor driving mechanical

    DO the LED's light up red or white? This is a great system! I always hated how the factory bulbs grounded. and sometimes half way fall out. Then a very nice looking car has a stupid looking light out. Always a personal pet peeve of mine.

    Nice! How does it look when the brakes lights are on? Does the flashing side just flash while the other side is solid?

    You are correct, one side flashes while the other is bright/solid
