This past week I was driving home from work and got fed up with my inability to see. My drive home happens just after midnight. Yesterday and today I completed the addition to relays into the high beam, low beam and fog lights. I also rewired the fog light switch so I can have the fogs on whenever I want. This project was accomplished thanks to mid day email conversation with Jeff Korn.

Thanks!

I also only had one fog working to start out.

This marks my first successful project from start to finish without any problems that worked the first time.

Now if I could just get the car to run right.

There is a noticeable difference. If my front header panel wasn't broke and I could aim my low beams up it would be amazing.

3 if not easier. I still need to go back and clean the work up/reloom the wires secure the relays. But that's not hard.
