69 taillights, Opinion Question?
Okay, chalk up one more thing I never knew about the 69s until now.
As I have been installing the AAW Update kit, I have been using my beat up factory harness as a template for taping, routing, etc. I am on the last little bit, the taillight harness, and I noticed that the OE harness for standard, non-RS put taillights only on the inner (toward center) part of the light housing, with the taillight/stop light/turn signal only on the outer side.
Now the AAW kit gives dual lead sockets for both inner and outer positions, and I think I will wire it that way. I figure more brake and turn lights are better than less. I guess my questions are kind of rhetorical, but...
Anybody have any clue why would GM wire them that way in the first place? On the 67 and 68 I've had, it's pretty obvious. But with two sockets on the housing for 69 plus the reverse socket, it just doesn't make sense to me.
Has anyone made both positions cover all the functions (tail, stop, turn) and wish they didn't because they think it looks goofy? I'm pretty sure I will think it's okay (how often do I follow myself, anyway??), but I was just curious what other folks think.
