rear turn signal wiring

I have a set of OE rear turn signal relocation brackets that I got from Pittdave a few days ago and I was wondering what gauge wire is on the turn signals so when I go to rewire the signals I have the right amount of wire for them or is there enough slack in the wires that I wont have to splice and dice wires. I would solder the wires and use shrink tubing to keep them water resistant of course. Any help would be great.

16, but 18 can also work.

Spock. I had some left over from my Optronics running lights. I believe it was 16 gauge

The Fire and Steel relocation kit comes with a set of extension wires for the turn signals. Those were thinner wiring than the harness by the way.

Rather than cut and add wires, maybe you can get the connectors (thin bullet type connectors) and make your own extensions. I don't have the part number...sorry!

Any good electronics store or supply should have them, or you can try a hobby store that has radio Controlled planes and cars. Take the removed turn signal with you and show them what you are looking for.

This way you can always return it to stock easily.

I don't think there is enough "slack" so you have to splice.... 18awg is more than enough.........

I just installed those brackets. Mine came with 2 extension wires. The wires there now are not nearly long enough. You didn't get the wires with the brackets?

Thanks all. As for getting the wires with the brackets, no. They were used brackets in very good shape and I was not expecting them anyway.Thanks everyone.
