The SS sailplane is a direct swap in, it's the wiring where it gets tricky. You have to feed a cable from the sailplane's location down to the driver side kick panel and wire it up there. I think it's about $70 for the plastic part, and $150 for the LED.

I'm an electrician also, it was easy setting it up. From memory it's a blue wire with a red strip for the +ve and just bolt onto the chassis for the -ve. Don't get tricky attaching to black wires for the -ve, I tried that and I was getting abs errors everytime I pushed the brakes.

you wire it into the brake loom which runs up under the door sill on the drivers side. PM me for wiring colours.

I've got a sailplane on my ute, from ebay $400.

If you are after just the standard one, Mine is in excellent condition I removed it from the ute to put the sailplane on. I only want $100 for all 3 pieces, no brake light in it but.
