  1. Used new led marker sets that required shaving to make them fit and shine at right angles
  2. hooked low intensity wire to old marker +12
  3. ran stop and both turns up the cap and hooked to high intensity wire with diodes at each connection
  4. installed a flasher unit in cockpit found spare marked pair to rear cap used two to set up emergency flasher config

  6. installed front marker sets to mimic rear markers all but the blinkers.
