Ive read a post that said that you can switch the DRL wires to your turn signals. Anyone know how to do this? Pictures and advice will be great.

Basically the grounds (white/black wires) remained the ground on each light. In other words, you don't extend them to each light so instead of having 4 wires total you will only have two.

What I did and if you can't tell in the preceding pictures is I took the power (solid green wire) from the stock turn signal and extended it to the power (solid green wire) on the socket of the stock DRL by using the solid red wire. Then I took the power (solid green wire) from the stock DRL socket and extended it to the power (solid green wire) on the turn signal by using the red/black wire. The grounds as I mentioned were untouched so there is no need to even cut or splice into them. LEAVE THEM JUST AS THEY ARE! It will save you not only time, but wire and the extra hassle in dealing with the splicing and re soldering of the wires. Hope the following pictures clear up confusion. If not just let me know and I will try to sort them out as best I can.
