    It's held on with double sided foam tape and hot glue. It's good from far, but far from good. Also, I do not have the fabrication skills required to french those things into the chrome just exposing the LED area, which would have been preferred - and f'n awesome, but I digress. It is functional though.

    Sequential mod done. Was a little more splicing than I originally thought it was going to be, but it's very effective.

    Used the plug and play 96-2004 Mustang harness from Raxiom. Spliced out the sequential parts from the harness and spliced that into the crown vic harness. This should work on any 92-94 Crown Victoria. Maybe to 97 if the inner light is also a 3-wire socket that only uses 2 wires.

    I really like having the 3rd light on each side. That much more light up the night/day and get people to notice me senpai.

    LED conversion... DAYUM! These are good and bright. Very good infill too.

    Converted the tail lights, reverse lights, and blinkers to LED. Using an EL-12 flasher so no resisters are needed. LED bulbs are by Auxito. The 3157 ambers for the blinkers and reds for the tails are very nice. The 912 for the reverse lights are okay. They are a little brighter, but nowhere near the difference as the 3157 style. Now I "should" have less issues with other drivers seeing my signals.

    912 - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FYH2V4J/
    3157 red - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07V67K1L7/
    3157 amber - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07V67DZLV/

    Had to install one resister per side. Under just battery power, the flasher wouldn't trigger the blinkers. Hazards work fine though. With the resistor though, no issues at all.

    One day and already confirmed it's not a fueling issue causing the pinging. Seems the timing is advanced a bit far for mild acceleration/load/rpm. It's only in the middle of the map though. Looks like I'll have to take a few degrees out of the tune.
