    Really it wasn't all that bad. Didn't even have to splice into anything. Just got some female 7443 conectors and made a mini harness. Other than modifying the 912 socket port (a doddle really) everything was just plug and play.

    The only other thing I might do is either make the former signal portion (top of the lamp) part of the brake lamps, or convert them to rear fog lamps.

      I love that location for the turn signal, the amber color in the clear housing looks so much better and more clear than the red behind red. I would totally take advantage of that extra red spot for some more brake lights!

        I was thinking that or rear fogs.

        If I convert it to an extra brake lamp, I'm thinking of using a strobe lamp. (1, 2, 3, on)

          Okay, so I tried the green lamps.

          They do in fact emit an amber/orange light. But between the green light and the red lens, it's almost invisible during the day and wouldn't be that bright at night.

          It's definitely amber though.

          Something to do with the color of the red and green partially canceling itself out?

            Right at the start of the video you can see it in action. These peugeot 307 and 307 SW were sold in Egypt and are where I got the idea from. Looks like the inner lens is green and the outer one is red using a (white?) bulb.
