Redoing my turn signal setup

When I first installed my turn signals I just used 2 rocker switches and a LED tail light converter kit made for trailers to reduce the wires from 5 to 4 so it would work with a 2 wire led tail light used for stop/turn/tail. The converter wires got pulled loose and quit working. So now I going to rewire and use a column mounted lever, doing away with the rocker switches and the trailer converter.

Here's a question for you RD. When you mounted yours to the column did you get a good ground from clamping to it or did you run another one to the frame? The instructions say to scratch the paint to get a good ground.

I was still working when I first installed the turn signals over 4 years ago and rushed putting them in, now that I'm retired I can take my time. I'm going to pull all the wires and start over, maybe it will be a little cleaner install.

I've used 4 conductor flat trailer wiring, works pretty good, and you can separate it where you feed both sides. They come in 20 ft. lengths.

Here's what I already have, 6" oval front & rear turn signals, the rear are recessed in the bed. I'm replacing the rocker switches with a column switch I bought at NAPA today, https://www.napaonline.com/napa/en/p/LIT900/

This should do away with the 5-4 wire trailer converter I needed to use with the rocker switches.

That motor was a godsend! Small package, ultra torque, HP, and revs to the moon! See where Ford has packaged a 460 CI. off their 351 motor. Give me a 4 bolt main SBC, a pair of turbos, good set of heads, and electronics to match, these things are putting 1,000 HP out!

Picked up a 25' roll of the 4 conductor wire and some connectors at NAPA today, I should have everything I need to get this project started. Now do I start this project in the cooler early mornings with coffee or after the sun goes down with a cold beverage?

Our highs right now are in the 90's and the lows in the 70's. My garage faces the west so I no doubt mornings would be a lot cooler but who doesn't like a little BS and cold one on a hot summer night!
