Engine Mods 18 Oct 2014

A Different Headlight Relay Upgrade - 4 Relays

Electrical 25 May 2015
I recently completed a headlight relay upgrade, but I did it differently than the traditional approach. It's a little more complicated, but I think the results were worth the effort. Basically, I used four relays instead of two so that each filament has it's own set of contacts and high curr...
