pjw1967 If I am reading the reviews correctly, this is a flasher solution. Watch out for polarity and grounding.

BTW my Ames-supplied solid state Chinese-made voltage regulator is still functioning just fine. This flasher is solid state as well.

Not for the GTO I'm afraid

We do carry quite a few standard sizes, but they are typically for newer vehicles. It's difficult to find flasher and bulb data for vehicles pre-1990

There may also be LED-compatible flashers for your GTO as well if you aren't comfortable splicing in resistors onto the factory wiring.

Redoing those old housings and wiring...saw Eric had mentioned these...


Bright lights matter...nobody can see you with dim bulbs....

Sure they will work great!
They are substantially brighter than the factory incandescent bulbs

Looking forward to seeing your comparison photos!

What's the correct answer on this?
