Re: Headlight upgrade
I built a 1970 Nomad Wgn. driver seven years ago. I have driven it over 35.000 in 7 years. I do very long and far away road trips from the Pittsburgh, Pa. area. ( Fla, Tenn, Mich, N.Y.)
I installed relays on the headlights, My headlights get Batt. power. Org. wiring was.......... A hot wire into the car from the V. Reg. NOW AFTER,,,, The radio , Heater, Dash lights , and what ever else you have wire up..... Pull the headlight switch and they get what ever is left of the voltage.
I went with 4 Halogen bulbs for the front ( Sylvania Bulbs) NOW the headlights are EXCELLENT, They have that white look ,,NOT that Orange look. I now have very bright dash lights.
My relays are mounted near the V. Reg. sooooooo ,,, The Batt. voltage comes across the core support to the relays and then 6 or 8" to the Halo. bulbs.
I am VERY HAPPY with the brightness of the headlights and I can DAM well see at night.
P.S. If I have the brights on at night and forget,,, I get Bright/Light back in my face. PLUS, My headlights look Org.
OR Buy some " New And Improved " high dollar headlight system.
