While I was working on my airbox last weekend, I also added a second socket
to the sidemarker lights and wired them in parallel with the turn signals.
My friend with the bodyshop is getting me a pair of the teeny-weeny lights
Chevy uses on their late-model Camaro and I plan to install these in place
of the turn signals in the bumper. I've measured everything carefully and
believe they will fit neatly without any modification to the bumper cover;
the bumper underneath, of course, will need some work but this will not be
externally visible and shouldn't be too difficult in any event.
I was going to keep this a secret until I'd actually finished it but would
welcome any comments and/or thoughts anyone might have before I go further
with it. Damn ... yet another secret of mine escaped from captivity!
