Bruce would you explain the four wires on the Scamp as opposed to the three lights on the Doran 7". Someone posted the green should be connected to the black on the light, red to red, and ground. We tried this and it didn't work. On the original light, the red and green went into the same lamp and the black to the other plus the white ground wire. Wish we could figure this out as we spent plenty on the lights and the shipping. Any help is appreciated.

Nlife.... I like how yours are recessed like that. My 77 had the 4in block lights, and you're right you couldn't see them... I put new auto stocks on that have a good illumination. I am debating on putting in a 3rd light higher up just below the window for stupid people...

The wiring was a bit of a challenge to figure out because the wiring from the vehicle is one set of colors, the Scamp wiring is another set of colors and the light is different still.
I am attaching a photo of the wiring diagram with my pencil notes. I hope you can figure it out.
Left to right
Vehicle > Scamp > Tail Light
Green > Brown > Red on the Right light
Yellow > Red > Red on the Left light
Brown > Green > Black on both lights
White (ground) > Gray on the drawing > to the ground for the light.

I added a separate license plate light.

I am also planning to switch to 7-pin wiring on the vehicle some day so I also indicated the future wiring for the brakes and back-up lights.

I hope this helps. (image attached)
