Spent another 11 hours working on wiring yesterday. Every wire has been accounted for and my audio system is working except for the little tweeters in my console. I still need to filter the signal to them (I know nothing about car stereos! ). Good news is the turn signal works like it should. I'm not using a typical buggy turn signal lever or a stock column. My switch is just a toggle on my center console. I'll include a photo of the relay arrangement. I used an electronic type flasher since all my lighting is LED.

I did my turn circuit this way because I wanted to use my brake light as the blinker instead of using a separate bulb for the rear turn signal. Would I do it again? Maybe, having a separate bulb for turn signal would have been much simpler and less opportunity for failure. This type of circuit is popular on buggys that use a single rear bulb (1157). I could have eliminated all the relays if I had just used a separate bulb. Many decisions were made early on in this restyling of #114. Many decisions get changed as we go along in a project and time passes. We learn new things, find different products, see other cars as the project progresses. I made a plan early and made my wiring harness over a year ago. Just now getting to connect up all the pieces.

Google "tweeter high pass filter" or "tweeter capacitor" for ideas. Crutchfield sells "Bass Blocker" caps. Much easier and cheaper to passively filter low frequencies out of a tweeter than filter highs out of a sub.
