1992 deville LED tail light help

Ok i decided to do the led tail lights my self i purchased the 50/50 led light strips and the wire connectors. Got the wire connectors first. Noticed they only have a red and black wire, hot and ground but on the car hot ground and green wire im guessing for the flashers? I dont have the lights in the mail yet so i cant tast to see what happens with out the green wire.

I hope you have considered how to compensate
for the difference in resistance between the regular bulbs and the LEDs -
if not - you are going to have flasher problems -

how much brighter are you going to make the brake/turn -
compared to the running lights -

how are you planning on doing this?

how are you mounting these light strips?

be sure to post pics of this project - :food-snacking:

ill post pics right now i have cut out aluminum piece's to lay the strips out. As for the flashers we will see. I just have stare parts from my wreaked deville so why not try something. There was this one site that sold led tail lights for my car but they went out of business and just recently got back in business but dosent make the lights for cadillac no more �� customclassic.com
