Looks nice! The LED's in the rear one sure lights the side marker better than the front one when you compare them in the photo's.

The standard Fiero blinker module works by means of load on the circuit. Changing to LEDs means there is a much lower load, so there are potential problems with the blinker circuit. I believe there is one specific part # at AutoZone that can be used as a replacement blinker module, that will solve the blinker issues for most people. There could be other issues, but usually they seem to be related to this specific problem.

Your FRONT marker lights will have to work with the current going in either direction, so the light bulbs need to be non-polarized. If you use polarized LEDs, you will need a bridge rectifier. See the ogre's link.

From so of the replies I'm not sure if people understood what I said. With the parking lights on the side marker blinks fine I didn't look if it blinked with them off but I just wired it straight in. So thanks for the link I guess the brand of lights I used were set up to work fine
