    my only suggestion is to solder the connections instead of using the pos 3m connectors or wirenuts..

    In the pictures you posted, there is still bare wire hanging out the end of the wiretaps... besides the fact they are prone to fail.

    +1 on the soldering but those are self-piercing scotchlocks, actually pretty good connection for a non-signal/ECM type tap.

    Not a problem. I know it's alot of work to not only perform an install, but to document with pictures/upload images and post them is an added time consumer and we appreciate it. :nice:

    The control for the sequential action is controlled by the kit. All it needs is the power source and it does the rest. So I don't see why it wouldn't work.
