    I did mine with brake light sequencing.

    Ok I found what you are talking about, now I have another question about the relays why do you need them if the sequential turn signal modules are jus plug and play?

    These modules feature sophisticated electronics that automatically adjust the sequencing speed to match the turn signal flasher in your car. While other products offer you fixed timing or complicated manual adjustments, our modules sense your car's flasher speed and adjust the 1-2-3 sequence timing for you. Want more separation between individual lamps? Just put in a slower flasher!

    If your car has combination stop/turn signal lamps, these modules will sequence the turn and emergency flashers only. The brake lights operate normally!

    The reason for the relays is because of the use of larger wire going to the rear of the car. If you want just hook them up like the directions tell you they should work.

    I also hooked mine up for brake light sequencing

    Oh ok, I guess it couldn't hurt to get the relays just in case I decide to use them at a later time and since they are on special right now

    Thanks for all the helpful information

    I have '68 Shelby lights in mine. Just use LED bulbs and you don't need larger wires and relays, the LEDs only draw 1/3 the current of incandescent bulbs. The LEDs are brighter and turn on and off faster, too. The Web Electric Products sequencers are what I'm using, also.

    Yeah, the tower type. 60-some LEDs on each. Sumbitches are bright!

    Except that LED tail lights look terrible in classic cars.

    that just made them...old cars...

    "A classic car is an older automobile; the exact definition varies around the world. The common theme is of an older car with enough historical interest to be collectable and worth preserving or restoring rather than scrapping."
    with that being said, how many got crushed for scrap metal...:huh:

    Some might say the same thing about all of the different aftermarket wheels on these cars! You don't know the LED lights are in the car until lights, turn signals or brake lights are activated. Wheels are on all the time. I replaced my tails w/ LED's for a matter of "what I consider safety enhancement " All a matter of opinion!
