Spilling guts

After setting up the LEDs in the front, I gave them a test.... we're all blinking at once...shit! I figured I had crossed a wire somewhere which must be the cause of the blinking. After exhausting every wiring possibility I realized that the flasher relay worked perfectly when I had only two LEDs installed but with all four, something else was going to be needed.

I got some inline resistors from and spliced them into the wiring harness in the rear. Apparently this is necessary to properly dissipate the appropriate amount of electricity. We drilled holes into the frame and zip-tied the relays where they would have minimal contact. They can get as hot as bulbs and melt stuff if the blinkers are left on.
