By parking lights do you mean the little light above the headlight? because if so you could just disconnect it. and if you mean the blinkers, (im not sure of this because i don't have a stock ignition) couldn't you disconnect that particular wire coming off the ignition going to the parking lights?

The parking lights are the small front and the tail light so that might not be the best solution.

Disconnect the wires attached to that spot in the ignition switch from the plug that go to the wiring harness. I don't remember what the contacts look like so you will need to open it up and look around in there to figure out how to disconnect that contact point from the circuits.
