Where to put the relay????

Please help a guy out before I find a tall building to jump off of!!

I had the grill & headlights removed, but just COULD NOT figure out where to mount the harness/relay so that the wire reaches to the ballast on both sides.

Please help!!


Thanks,
Mark

Mark, please contact us directly via EMAIL (sales@retro-solutions.com) for assistance with this.
Just a heads up though, you have 6ft between sides or 4ft between sides, it all depends on where the relay itself is mounted! Extensions are available as well if needed but please EMAIL us for those.

Well I was hoping to get this done today, but since it's Labor Day I assume nobody's at the office.

Is it ok to lengthen the wires in the long end of the harness to fit better?

You can, but please check with us first to make sure its done right so you don't end up in any trouble now or on down the road.
We also have extensions for that if you want, so no modifications are required at all.

I did end up getting them installed yesterday since I was off for the holiday.

I took my time and made sure to connect the wires good, secured them with solder, then covered in heat shrink to protect them, and even put some plastic wire loom on for extra protection.

Everything works great!!

Thanks for the help,
Mark
