well. my trusty roll of blue masking tape is not the right stuff for the job. i knew that too. damn i cant find my roll of less sticky stuff.

the flasher just uses a relay to turn the low beam on and off. not a strobe that you put into the housing

Are you taping in the strobes ? If you are instead try silicone,it'll probably work better for you.
