Post Blinkers (turn signals)

I'm building a 36 Ford 5 window coupe and have
frenched in 39 taillights. The two filiment bulb
has "tail light" and "brake light". Do I install
another assembly (mounted to bumper or other location) for the turn signal? May be a dumb
question, but I don't see how, since the brake
lights are common, that running a different
wire to each sides brake light can

on most cars the turn signal lights the brake light side of the bulb the turn signal switch will kill the power from the brakes so when your braking with the turn signal on it still blinks hope this helps

The turn light switch in the steering coulmn takes care of all of that. I put the same lights in the 46. Just hook them up just like it shows in the book. Hook running and brake lights up threw the turn light switch and the switch will take care of the turn lights. If you are going to hook up a third brake light then you will have to yse the brake switch. ROY
