    Looks good now stick the crimp terminals in some dialectic grease and heat shrink around them and you won't have to redo them later when they corode.

    Randy, check out my lighting article on the tech page. Towards the bottom I have a pic of the GM relay set that I picked up in a JY. It now controls the lights on my '90 Suburban. :)

    i grabbed mine out of a 95 ford windstar. really any vehicle you can pop the cover of the elec panel under the hood and find at least four. just make sure they are 30 amp. i thnk most of them are anyways
