I just received replacement tailights from Scamp
, the "new" rectangular style with back up lights
built-in. They are for replacing the older, square tailights (circa late 1970s?) which do not
have back up lights
. Since I do not have the wiring for using back up lights
and don't really want them anyway, I was considering wiring-in both lamps as stop lights/turn signals, to make the Scamp
more visible from behind, especially during daylight hours. I know that I have to replace the #1156 (one-filament back-up lamp) with a #1157 (two-filaments running/brake lamp). Since I am also going to replace all four marker lights, I thought I would cut out the old red marker lenses and attach them from the inside, in front of the square, clear-plastic back-up lamp window. I presume I should tie both white ground wires together and tie together both positive wires from the bulbs when wiring into the trailer harness. Is this workable? Am I missing anything? Thanks!
