DEPO R/C/R LED Tail Lights Installed

Had these for a while, got them originally from procarparts.com but they don't carry them anymore. I saw a group buy being put together to get them from Khoa, so make sure to hop on that.These however will make the bulb out waring come on, I'll ask others that have fixed it with resistors and see if I can put together a DIY to get rid of it.

For the turn signals i have 24 matrix design LED's from JleviSW, but they aren't bright enough to match the other LED's. Anyone know if a 32 LED bulb or a 5 watt LED would do the trick in more brightness?

Be sure to check out the trunk light fix if the brightness bugs you.

Here are some daytime pics and of the running lights, braking, and reverse.
