Re: need help !
If you're turning the backup light (reverser?) into a turn signal what will you use for letting others know you're reversing? Assuming you have a turn signal already in the light housing, by splicing into the wires of that turn signal at the rear then perhaps you could run some extra wires down to the bumper and connect the reverser too, you'd then just need an amber bulb in the clear lens. But you'd have to lower the resitance (correct me if I'm wrong) so that you wouldn't instantly lose half the power of your bulbs. Never heard of this mod before, just have a look around the light cluster is all I can offer. I have heard of something similar, that is re-wiring the rear fog-light into a reverser (Australia... fog... not a chance... at least not in Sydney and I'll never need it more than once or twice EVER) so that I have a reverser on each side. But that seems a little more simple than tapping into the indicators...
