    You can us TIER 3 or some type of LED that is self contained.

    Try AW Direct. They make some stand alone LED flashers that I bet you could make work. That's a cool idea.

    define you want to flash them? do you want to flash just the mirror lights? do you still want them to function as turn signals? if you just want them to flash with a flasher you will need to find the turn signal wire in the kick pannels and cut and splice the flasher wire to that wire. and if you want them to work both ways. theres 2 ways to go at it. either add a relay to each side to it cuts the power from the turn ginal wires and just lets them flash, or you can add diodes. but if your turning and the flashers are on it will do some funky pattern..

    right on the money......sho-me makes a flasher you can get on e-bay thats very nice..

    25 bucks...then go from there with relay cut-off for t-signal. but it might even act funky then too due to no constant signal from t-signal..it will only shut down flasher when signal is on...when off flasher will come back to life...

    IMO...just tie in and remember to turn them off when you turn...or leave em on...really your 4 corners are good enough to signal other cars for turning..use a diode so you don;t burn out flasher unit with the rest of the t-signal ciircuit.
