sequentail taillight wiring

I'm looking for some wiring help. I recently purchcased a sequential tail light wiring harness from CJ Pony Parts item WTL8 for my GT/CS and I need to know if anybody knows the proper wiring. The harness did not come with directions and their tech help just isn't there. There are 4 wires from the old lights and the colors don't match the new harness. Any help would be appreciated. Tim

Just don't put them in upside down like I did and they blinked inwards! Duh.

My GT/CS was my first car, still have it 43 years later. Paid $800. Featured in the May 1998 issue of Mustang Illustrated.

Too funny! You'd get cross-eyed looking at them if you had your emergency blinkers activated! I'm sure you mos def caught it before you drove it, but man, the looks on the faces of the drivers behind you when you'd signal would've been funny! "Ok...um wait...what the...huh?"

Maybe I should have left it that way!

I am thinking about installing this and would also like to know if anyone has any instruction or helpful tips?

Do they use the OEM style dynamite sticks or ? Did OEM style in my 68 EXP and the Scott Fuller sticks showed the correct connection's, the OEM use a scotch-loc clip and tie the wires together. Trick is ensuring you get the two black wires identified correctly...

Info here, maybe it helps with the harness you have, maybe not...

I don't remember whose kit I bought, but mine included a digital flasher (controller) and LED bulbs with a built in micro chip that responded to the signal sent by the flasher/controller to determine when to flash each light. The nice part was there was no wiring change, just replaced the stock flasher with the new one and plugged the LED bulbs into the correct socket.
