I guess I trust strangers too much...isopropyl alcohol, right?

Also, btw, I just pulled a pair of H4 100/130s out of my other car as they
have a tendency to melt the left side headlamp connector on that vehicle,
and I'm going to downgrade it to 80/100s, I think. 

It's always the left side first. I added relays for the lamps and I thought
they were getting a good ground...but it's always the ground connection
that fails.

Anyone have any ideas here?
