    I can't 100% speak for @MESO but I will tell you that based on what I know the wiring is up to the end user. People are going to have different goals with what lights up and when which will directly impact how everything ties together. Many users on here sound willing to help with the process. Myself or MESO could help through it as well if necessary.

    Based on some previous discussions on here there will be some walkthroughs. The BD lights have bared leads coming off of them. It'll essentially just come down to which wires to tap since the draw isn't that high.

    I would like to connect mine up like @74cam did using something along the lines of these.

    Curious if anyone has installed an NMO version and has had any interference with the shark fin antenna?

    Well that sucks, but hopefully for the rest of us it means production has begun.

    Had to get a second job just to buy MESO mods in Canada, on the bright side every week is pay week now and I’m always ready for the MESO drops.

    ATTN:

    I know that not everyone is not following this thread closely, nor is every single purchaser on the forums, but if you ordered your housing w/lights please be on the lookout for an email from me titled "MESO 3rd brake Light Selections" (Check your SPAM folder). If not yet completed, please be sure to fill out your form in that email ASAP to designate light selections!

    I plan on sending out the first blast of orders early this next week (waiting on some packing materials to show up), and the final volley should go out early the following week so I want to make sure I have the proper stock on hand!

    Additionally, if you ordered one of the KC or BD light setups and did not check the box to add lights to your order and have not yet sourced your lights send me a PM for a chance to still capture a great deal on your setup!

    :cheers:

    I was able to finally snag a KC4 for my 2nd gen. I was wondering if I could be able to connect the diode dynamics PWM dimmer https://www.diodedynamics.com/2a-led-pwm-dimmer-with-bypass.html to the red KC lights with the way you set your lights up with the plug you sourced? I’m no wiring guru and I can’t seem to picture where all the wires connect to. I would greatly appreciate it if you could either draw up a quick diagram or explain how to do it.

    Update-
    Printing out the housings as quick as I can. Shipping later this week and throughout the next.
    As for the little bulb adapters(MESO plugz) these will ONLY work for 2nd gen housings because they have a standard bulb socket. If you want some just shoot me a PM with your order number and I’ll throw some in.

    Yup that one will work fine. Although I might run one for each light just because 3 might overload the 2A limit.
