Thanks Steve! I was going to cut the cable CP supplied with the repeater ~ is there a harness connector that the other end of the cable plugs into?

No not a connector I have found yet. Just going to have to splice into the wires with a butt connector and shrink tube to keep it small in the harness. There is a ground bolt at each kick panel you can use though.
For the drivers side you will have to send the power wire over to the passenger side of the car since both wires are on that side. You can send it through the "Dash Tube"
to get over there.
Here is the pinout for connector for 201. X201 is one of the connectors that comes out of the knook behind the passenger kick panel.
We want the wires in spots 41 and 42 a yellow and green wire
And just for guidance on the kind of connectors to use to splice into the wire. The best technique I have found is to use a bare butt connector along with adhesive lined shrink tubing. Cut the factory wire, strip backs the three wires you will now join. Install a 2 inch length of shrink tubing down the wire. Install 2 wires on one end of the butt and crimp, crimp the other wire in to the other end of the butt. move the shrink tube over the butt connector. Heat till adhesive oozes out each end. Nestle the connection back in the main harness and tape around the area. That is a connection that will be trouble free.
Bare butt connector:
Will want one that can fit the factory wire (looks like it is about 18AWG) plus what ever wire you are using for your repeater. Since it is an LED you barely need anything big. Maybe 20AWG at the most.
Adhesive lined Shrink tubing. Just get some that is a little bigger than the butt connector.

Deleted post - Moral - DO not wire repeaters to the wires going to the rear of the vehicle or your repeaters wll come on with your brake lights. Not cool. Get the tun signal wires going to the front headlights.
