That was the plan. I've had enough of those clips fail on me already. I might see if I can get some male/female plugs for the lights, and hook them up that way.

Judging by the resistors, my initial assumption would be turn signals

I guess I'll let it slip. lol

The resistors are for some 6000k temp LEDs for my drls/trun signals, which I don't have yet, and the bulbs in the pic are for my reverse lights:

Brighter reverse lights… now why didn't I think of doing that? Thanks for the idea.

have you replaced you license plate bulbs already with LED'*? Reverse lights was a good idea, I may have to do the same here soon. Mine are starting to look more tan then white

Yeah, tag lights were one of the first things I changed to LEds, along with the other bulbs in the trunk panel.

The reverse lights were really bad. My parking spot at my apartment is usually really dark, and visibility sucks. I haven't tried them out tonight yet, but anything is an improvement. haha
