    I'll advise against making such changes, as it will throw off the balance in your electrical system; such as the flash rate for turn signals, etc. - also, if you increase the number of filaments for brake lamps, you will risk overheating the plastic lens, which would damage it/them.

    Besides that, we have a Terms of Service that restricts certain topics; and one of the big ones is "automotive modifications", as stated in this quoted excerpt:

    If you feel that you really must do this against my advice, then you will need to seek help elsewhere; as such discussions are not permitted here.

    There is a topic in the Electronic Resources forum that has links to several other websites that may entertain discussion of your project:

    In the meantime, feel free to look around and participate here; as long as the discussions are civil and are in compliance with the ToS, it's good to go.

    SgtWookie has the right of it I'm afraid, which is why I am closing this thread.
