    When you're installing these low cost LED setups, are you adding any resistors, relays or anything like that to run these? My buddy gave me a set of LEDs that have yellow on the top and white on the bottom, they're 8" long by about 1 " tall. They come with mounting brackets that would fit them inside the front turn signal on my non RS car.. Wondering if there's anything I'd need to do to use these as driving lights and turn signals? Maybe a different flasher?

    Thanks

    You will need to use an electronic flasher with external LED signal lights.
    (LED dash indicators alone don’t require a different flasher.)

    Electronic flashers function on a timer circuit rather than resistance/heat to trigger the on/off cycle.
