[T3] turn signal wiring

I think it is possible, but it needs wiring changes on the back of the idiot light connector, and as Jim says, it's hardly needed.  There was a description of how to do it in an Australian club magazine many years ago, which I probably still have somewhere, but it would take me ages to find.

UK VW Type 3 and 4 Club.

I've tried several times to work something out that will work to my 
satisfaction, but I keep coming up empty. Part of the problem is that the OE 
VW setup puts the inside indicators out of phase with the outside lights. This 
minimizes the current variation. Admittedly, the inside current is minimal.

While this may seem like a worthwhile change, keep in mind that all 
aircooled VWs were done this way. It's a non-problem, once you get used to 
it. It's not like you were going to forget which way you switched the TS stalk 
or were unable to feel which way that stalk was pushed.
