    Did you have to apply the resistors for the rapid blinking with the V-Leds?

    I did have hyper blink, but fixed that by modifying the relay flasher circuit. Load resistors would also work.

    Shucks..... OK. I did take some pictures when I installed them. I'll provide a link here when I am done (probably a few days) so I stop thread jacking.
