    My cobra tail lights were screwed up and rather than paying 250 for a new pair I bought a set of 99+ GT tail lights from ebay. I like the look of the GT tails much better anyhow (all black car, the yellow was too much). not to mention they were 200 dollars cheaper.

    Anyhow, the problem is the wiring doesn't match. There is a light on the cobras that the GTs don't have (turn signal). Is there an easy way to make this work? I suspect the guys that put the aftermarket lights on their cobra have faced similar issues.

    Hmmmmm, that is a VERY good question.

    I have an 01 so I know exactly what you mean.

    I tried to install sequentials a while back and it won't work for the exact same reason. The problem you may face is that I believe the harnesses are different so it may be tough call. Getting the proper signal to the proper place.

    Sorry for the no help ...
