Chrome turn light bezels came back from the shop. Assembly and negative ground test has to be performed to be sure they will work wen installed, once the car is finished painting

Checking door and fender gaps. Prepping for final blocking and polyester primer sealant next.

It's coming along nicely. One thing though, the cornering lamp is not supposed to blink. It only comes on when the parking or headlights are on and the signal light is actuated. So on a right hand turn, if the lights are on, when you signal right, the right hand cornering lamp goes on and is turned off when the signal cancels. They are to provide additional illumination when turning in dark areas and work great. You can activate one or the other by signaling in the direction you want extra illumination if you like. They are pretty bright and are actually useful.

I'm sorry I didn't explain the blinking. The thing is that I was missing the ground wire contac to the case of the bezel. It apeared as if it was blinking. It's just my unsteady hand making false contac with the screw holding the bulb case.
You are right,  it should be a steady, solid bright light beam.
Here I'm testing the rear stop light bezel. First, the red back park light. Then the bright stop light and finaly the intense reverse white light.  ( with a steadyer hand)
