Well ffs.
I'll say nice things about the PO. At least I have nice new grounds.. cleaned up wiring etc. So there's that.
But who knew if you switched the signal wire with the negative wire that a standard bulb would still work?! I didn't. Bleh.
FIXED. My fault.. should have frigg'n checked. Thanks dudes.
Now onto AL rad / TB E fan install!

Whoa whoa whoa, hold the phone.

So your ground and intermittent + wire (turn signal) was swapped in each other's spot? And the turn signal still worked when it was wired that way???

Some LED bulbs are able to be installed in either direction. The manufacturer designed the circuit in such a way as to allow that.

What brand are you thinking for future headlamps?

Ended buying the 50W 8000LM SEOUL-CSP.
But these lenses.. eh.. think I'll sell. They are glass and all, just probably want something that looks factory.

I've found that one ones that look like this suck. Just not bright.
The other style here, those are good, real bright.
