Divotandtralee-good idea about LED bulb! What standard are original bulbs?
Good job, Franjo!

FYI, most period flasher relais have timing intervals are driven by the current of the bulbs. This is why the timing interval changes (faster clicking) if a bulb is burnt out. Hence, converting the direction indicator light (blinker) to LEDs with less power consumption than bulbs would have the same effect as a burnt out bulb and owners would have to change the flasher unit to a solid state version if one decides to go with LED.

Resistors placed in line to an LED will cause an LED to flash normally Regrettably I don't know the correct resistance, but I'm sure the correct values are easily obtained via a search online.

Nope, they would have to be in parallel with the LEDs, not in-line (which would make matters worse and dim the LEDs).

The fog light bulb was rated 45W. It can be substituted by a LED without problems.
The parking light/direction indicator light is dual-filament bulb rated at 5W/20W.
