Default Arlen Ness Illuminated License plate wiring help

Does anyone still have their instructions for wiring a NESS illuminated license plate?
I know (through searching on this site) that the Ness blue wire is the +12v brake wire,
Which is ground and which is +12V between the yellow and green?

I am afraid to experiment, as I do not know if it is reverse power protected.

A query has been sent to Arlenness.com, and if/when they answer, I will post it here.

I am just trying to get the wiring done today.

Take the Ness wires and touch to your battery. Nothing will burn up
Try yellow on ground and green on positive or switch them around.
Even try the blue.

Green is ground,
Yellow is tail/license,
Blue is brake

On my Arlen Ness illuminated license plate holder.
It takes #8-32 screws for the blind mounting holes.

But I will not get to use it on my Kingpin; I cannot get it to fit under my luggage rack.

So back to the shortened OEM holder I was using before, but now with the added HYPERLIGHT brake and turn signals,

I may be interested in buying your Aness LP holder. Private message me
