Thanks for all the positive feedback guys. I will be under the hood this weekend to do the fender wire harnes re-location - so I will take some pics & do a DIY write up.

I took some night pics from my phone last night but it came out bad. I'll take some night shots this weekend with a regular camera to show you how it looks at night.

Was it worth it? Absolutely!
The most expensive part was the LED bulbs. I paid $50 for the set back when I bought them. Now they go for $25 per set around here. I got them at a local meet on Friday nights - some vendors set up and sell HID's, LED's, etc.

Sorry for the delay.
I tore the meniscus in my knee and was out of commision for a while.
Surgery, and now physical therapy. But now getting back to normal.

Tools / materials needed:
Electrical tester
Electrical tape / liquid
Remote type wire
Wire (I used extra remote wire - royal Blue)
2 color 1157 bulb (White for constant & amber for when you use your blinkers or hazard lights) I paid $50 for the paid of these bulbs. I heard they are available for $25 for the pair these days...

So - the point is to get the "constant power" from the park lights. Use the electrical tester to confirm which is giving power.
I spliced the contant (power) wire from the park lights and ran it to the corner lights plug. See pic 1 & 2.

The bulb must have 2 contacts and have 2 colors. See pics # 3,4, & 5.

Hope this helps.

Feel free to ask questions.

I have had this mod for at least 6 months and have not had any issues.

So does this mod effect the function of the turn signals?

As long as you use a bulb that has amber / orange - then it will work fine and be legal when you put your turning signal on or your hazards.
If you look at the original post - it shows how it looks with the turn signal on, and how it looks with just the lights on.
