Yes, I have. It was quite easy to do actually.

You need to find an 84 and cut the inner third lamp socket on either side.

These will replace the two wire socket next to the reverse lights.
The 84 was the only Notchback that had all three light up originally.

Wire in the park light and ground on that socket, then follow the instructions on the sequential module...

I installed them many years ago, and got tons of comments on them. You may need an electronic flasher that slows the turn signal pattern down though..

Also, there is an optional wire that can be run to the very front under the dash.
This is so that when you hit the brakes, if this wire is hooked up, your lights come on steady without cycling once.
If you do not run this, then when you hit the brakes, the lights will cycle one time, and then stay on steady.

I did not run this wire, as I felt it made the car more visible during initial braking.

Also, pick up the third brake light flasher. This pulses the light several times at high speed before coming on steady, and mounts right up by the light under the cover.

Fantastic products.

You can get the sockets at most auto parts stores. No need to steal them from an 84 car.

Ok...I need to get a three wire socket for the bulb closest to the back up lights..( Ask for 84 at the parts store )

..Yea I was looking at the blinker for the third break light..Sounds like a GOOD idea being so low...

I was going to get the kit from Web Electric...If I dont put that other wire to the brakes I will not
have to pull my carpet out correct ? Im saving for this kit and I want to try to get the car together
soon and be able to drive it...

Also,,with this kit ALL three tail lights will work on brake also .Correct?? I had a 82 TA that I re-wired the
tail lights to all come on at once It was Great.. I just would like to go a little more with the Fiero


Thanks,
Shannon

Yes to all of the above.

I still have my modules, even after converting to LED, and am considering modifying my tail lights again to integrate the modules for the sequentials..

I used the module from Webelectric and it worked great fro me. I actually went one better and also replaced my backup light with a 2 element socket so I have 4 lights flashing across. I replaced my bulbs with LEDs to cut down the draw and used an adjustable flasher from http://www.keepitcleanwirin...d-Adjustable-Flasher to slow it down a bit. The guys at Webelectric were very helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to deal with them again.

What happens when you put on the 4 way flashers? Same sequential dance from both sides or not? Or does it treat it like a pulsing brake application?

Have both on my 84 Indy. The sequential brakes look great in action!
I have the 3rd brake pulser wired for my LED brake strip in the wing.
Both are excellent products http://www.webelectricproducts.com/
