you need to get two pairs of load resistors and connect them to the bulb wiring. you'll need 2 sets (4 load resistors)

lemme see if i can find an ebay link...

hmm not positive... but it does seem like something that radio shack would likely carry.

EDIT: ask em if they carry 6 ohm 50 watt resistors. if they do, they should work.

This is the retarded way to do it. Buy the Electronic flasher.
I did this with my L1224R Fiber optic LED bulbs and works perfect.
