Sorry, I was thinking of a ford.

Do you want the running lights on as long as the ignition is on or a seperate switch?

That one is even better. A couple of sta-con connectors and you are good to go.

You can get a universal turn signal switch to mount on the steering column

The rears are on when the switch is on so plan on tying into that circuit for the lights. The dash headlight switch only turns on the headlights.

Not enough room for the switch, alchemist. Got the back turn signals done today. Snaking the wires from the rear up to the front was a PITA. The frame is TS and the other wires run through it for about 5'. Had to run a hard bare wire through and tie the wires to it and pull the signal wires through. Used about 20 small zip ties to secure all the wires to the box and up in the front end. Looks pretty professional now.

Not too sure the rear signal lights are bright enough. I have two more. Think I may add them so they face straight back. The other two are kind of at an angle.

Samcord (Mike) helped my install the other rear turn signals today. Much better visibility from the rear now.
