I know this had been discussed, but I've search and cannot locate the info.
I'm installing the AAW wiring kit, so all is new.
Now, do I just attach the indicators to the brake lights? ( if so would they flash when the brake is on)....
Do I use the back up/ parkerslights as indicators?
.???
And if I was so bold, possibly a wiring diagram ? Please

There are multiple options however I ended up using my back up lights as both for reverse and as blinkers, I liked this clean option. I made the lenses clear so they look normal when not being used and then used an orange bulb. So they are wired seperatley to the brake lights. Others have the break lights with a blinker in them. I don't have any wiring diagrams but some of the boys will for sure.

The AAW kit has a third brake light wire. I think it's the light blue wire(should be marked). It comes straight of the brake feed to the column, instead of going through the steering column. I used this wire as my brake light feed wire for both brakes.
I then moved the indicator/brake wire down to each reverse light instead of the tail lamps.

Then, when you convert your steering column plug to the AAW plug, don't connect the green wire coming out of the column to the plug(where it's meant to match up with the white wire from the brake switch). This removes the brake 12v from going into the column and mating up with the turn signal wires.

That gives you the turn signal wires as dedicated turn signal wires, and the brake light wire as a dedicated brake light wire, without messing any of the loom up.

For a reverse/turn signal light, you should be able to just use a switchback led globe, that flashes amber and is white with constant power. I have the reverse/amber leds from vintage leds, and while they are awesome, it is a bit more modding to make them fit.

That's exactly right (what Husky said) I've got mine wired up that way and they work flawlessly. I can take a pic if you want.
