    I have my Triton adapters so I will be taking my Tails as Turns adapters and my resistors. I will sell it to you.

    I figured it would go that high, but won’t hurt anything correct? I’ll try it if that’s the case.

    I’m not a doctor, but... the load would be ~1.0A, which shouldn’t do anything.

    Here is the quick lesson: Electricity works with smoke. If you let the smoke out, it will stop working.

    Teaser picture. You will see final product tomorrow. This is the things you will need to complete the job. Meso’s adapters fit like glove. There is not a milimeter of movement.

    One observation I have is borrow step bit from a friend if you already dont have it! $45 at freakin Lowes. I will probably never use it again.

    Lookin' good! I purchased my step bits from harbor freight. Can't beat the prices. My advise when reaming out the hole is to hold the tail light upside down that way any plastic shavings will fall down and out the hole rather than inside the tail light. Those Tritton adapters look slick;)
