    For those that have done the flasher mod when running LED turn signal bulbs what were the resistors that you used? I followed someone's recommendation to use .5 ohm resistors from Digikey but that wasn't enough resistance. I'm using low resistance LED bulbs front and rear. I installed another set of .1 ohms resistors and it wasn't quite enough but close. I ended up grinding some off to get the to work. I would like to do it proper and thinking .13 ohms would work? Anyone who have successfully installed some resistors what did you end up using? Thanks

    Here's what I posted on the other thread. That 16 months is now almost 3 years without issue.

    I bought some 0.15ohm 2W resistors to do mine, but they got delayed in shipping. So I have some 0.15ohm 1W's in there currently and they're going strong on 16 months.​

    Thanks for the reply. OK so .15 ohms. Where did you buy them? Digikey only had .1 ohm resistors

    I got the 1w ones from a surplus electrical store in Hillsboro, OR. I had to dig thru bins and climb ladders.

    Amazon has 2w ones. I wish I was near my home shop and I'd send you some. I have (30)...

    I've added the Amazon ones to my cart. Thanks for the offer on sending yours. I'm surprised that 1W would work. Thanks again for confirming.
