Oh, just a couple of pictures from a few months back
A wiring diagram of my battery pack. All wires are within an 1/8" of each other, 2 parallel, 2 series. Buddy paired, wires to and from pack balanced.
And a photogragh of the wiring, disorganized?, nah, just effective.

I been complaining a lot, so I finally buckled down, had a sheet of stainless steel. Got out the jig saw, cut me out a fender. Mounted my lights to it. Will probably go with one light, just put a better bulb in. That's for the future. A little clean up on the wiring too.

How and why did I build this bike? Design limitations
Why, not philisophical, short drive to work. My car would'nt heat up. Hard on a car to make short trips. I knew an electrical bike could be made. I googled, saw what others where building, where they were getting contollers, performance.
Now the How
I built off the work and effort of others. Eric Peltzer had just about what I considered to be the perfect E-bike. I built it. I did'nt do many calculations, just used his advice.

I have been reluctant to enter, My back room. You may be shocked to see what I keep back here, parts of dismembered bicycles. After a year of hacking up my favorite bikes I have repented my ways. Come with me and see if I can make things right.
Left dangling by its heel, my first mountain bike, a venerable chromemoly frame, the most comfortable bike I had ever rode, stripped of all its dignity. It called, I entered.

I have most of the wiring figured out for my rear lights. Now, how do I wire the brake lights, when I apply my brakes will my turn signal not flash. For me the easy way would be to just run a third light for my brake light. It looks to me that automotive flasher, has 2 prongs, should be run like this, does it over ride the brake signal and keep just one of the lights flashing, will both lights flash if I hit the brakes?
