I have an add-on wiring harness. This adds a small relay and fuse holder that
sits in that nice large open space in front of the main radiator. The stock
sockets are all detached, with one of the main headlight sockets from the
existing wiring plugged into the new harness to control the relays. The new
harness is plugged directly into the alternator, with the stock connector
plugged in on top of it piggy-back style. The connectors on the new harness
are ceramic and the wiring is pretty damn robust. I haven't worked out how the
relay panel works, but there are three relays and three fuses.
My only other change has been to replace the screws fixing the right headlamp
with Allen screws, which are easier to remove and replace quickly.
