Default Too quick flash

Z300S Barchetta #4 has LED front and side indicators and as a consequence exhibits a very fast flash sequence. A MOTable offence probably.

So- I eBayed and fitted a "25W Car LED Turn Signals Indicator Light Load Resistor Flash Rate Fix Relay" in parallel with each of the front indicators and that returned the flash rate to normal. They are just resistors, not relays.

Only problem is that the resistor blocks run very hot so for now they are out in the air flow behind the round vents on the front. Long term it may be an idea to mount them actually on the expanded metal. They get too hot to mount on any plastic part. Of course they can be wired in at any position on the circuits but it was most convenient to mount them using the existing connector break at the front.
