Not sure if the turn signals were yellow when new - when I got it, there was a yellow lens inside the bus, but the turn signals were red. They were not originally wired up for tail lights. As you can see, I remedied that, wanting maximum possible visibility.

Adhesives, rust, and pretty much everything else including the paint. I'm not ready to paint it any time soon.

Not much to post over the last couple days ... Got insurance. Allstate wouldn't touch it after speaking to my actual agent, although he genuinely seemed like he wanted to keep my business. So I ended up with a Progressive Commercial/private use policy for about $360/year. My Suburban is twice that, and I barely drive it. Went and got a temp tag, so I can drive it around to start working out the kinks.

Were your old/new lights single wire with a body ground or the multi pin plug in style?
I had to replace my reverse lights for inspection and wanted to upgrade but couldn't find them.
I want to change the old flashers front and back to clear lenses, get rid of the flash and put the front on the same toggle switch and tie the back into the reverse lights but haven't found any replacements for my idea and would love them to be LED.
Any help is appreciated.
I have thought about the old KC light thing but don't want to go there yet.

on my bus the flasher lenses were the same as the rear bus lights in size.. so maybe you can use reverse lights in your flasher positions if you just want white lights there..

My old lights were single/double wire with body ground. Many of the new LED lights were multi-wire but not plug-in style. They are all hard wired, many of which I had to ground separately from what was original.

I have not yet messed with the back-up lights, neither come on with trans in reverse (engine off, switch on), I will crawl under at some point and see if I am getting voltage at the reverse light switch (which I am assuming is on the tranny).

I also procured some WS2812 type LED's and a micro-Arduino-type controller, which are intended for use behind the instrument cluster and remaining switches.
