Default Led tail lights installed

I installed some led tail lights. Wired them so now I have 4 brake lights and 2 signals on each side. Next I will have to add a reverse light.

Hey that looks great! Several years ago I rewired my taillights so that all four function as brake/turn signals after the reverse switch broke. I have toyed with the idea of going with LEDs but wasn't sure how it'd look. Seeing how fab yours looks may persuade me to do it. I really like how it looks on your car.

I installed the trim rings from my stock tail lights on to my LEDs

Looks good. Do you have any issues with the directionals blinking too fast? I read somewhere there is a resistor available specifically to prevent this "hyperflash".

Yes I installed a resistor on each side for the signals
