Will check that out when I dig in...whatever it takes to get the job done.

At this point do have a relayed wiring harness for the Euro lights...way 
back when went the easy route and purchased Blaus wiring loom.  I remember 
wishing they'd have spent the extra $5 and included the seal boots on their 
harness so wouldn't have felt compelled to add them.  Oh, how I love 
blau...let me count the ways.

Ya, I've heard about that...I do remember when I did my rear pads wbw (way 
back when) the ebrake mechanism on the caliper is quite difficult to move, 
so when anybody drives my car and makes the mistake of applying the ebrake, 
I need a hammer to undo what they've wrought.
