Relay for Front Lights to disable bulb warning

It was already removed as are some other things I have to put back
together - part of my getting good price on the car, I guess.

I wonder why this 200Q 20V doesnt have that nice "easy access" panel
that pops out in 2 sec, like the 5000.  Several other things that arent
so easy to deal with on the newer, but I digress - progress, I suppose.

Wonder what the metal encasing on the back of the panel is for - some
kind of EFI sheilding or the electronics in case of nuclear blast?

I will likely modify this not so easily removable "underdash-it-all"
panel with diagnostics button and guages before I re-install it, and
likely have some other wireing to do, so it stays out for now.  It
hasn't bothered me as much as the shift boot which seems rather
difficult to re-install.
