wiring upgrades for headlights 87 4KS
Well, I just crawled out from under the car, where I spent my holiday
upgrading the so-so wiring on my Hella driving lights.
I upgraded the wires supplied with the kit to a full 12ga. wiring harness
for the lights, relayed to the high-beam circuit. I ran a positive feed
from the battery, fused of course, to the relay, and then used a
high-beam wire to switch the relay. It works well, and probably will put
out more light with the better wires. If anyone wants the gory details,
e-mail me direct.
Now, on to the question part. I want to do the same to the headlights,
as I have heard bad things about the factory wiring. Someone said that
the this type of upgrade will improve the lighting of the factory lights.
Since the headlights are all individually fused through the block, I am
assuming that I would need four relays to do the job right. How should I
do this? Should I run four feeds from the battery and switch the relays
through the original wiring, or do something else. I'm not really loving
the thought of doing this, but feel that it would be a good idea.
STEADIRIC, didn't you have your headlights done this way when I saw it at
Grattan? I thought you had four relays. How did you do it?
