Finished harness145 viewsHere we see the completed upgraded Headlight wiring harness.
To build a harness you will need the following ( colour of wire is your option, below is just what I used )
1 roll 25' each of red-power, green-grnd, white-neutral, 12 G wire, I also bought a 50' roll of 18 gauge blue-trigger wire
2 30/40 Bosch style relays, an assortment of spade style and ring terminal crimps in the 12-10 g ( yellow ) size, also a small pack of 22-18 g ( red ) scotch-locks for tapping into your oem high/low beams, various colours of shrink tube and 2 ato style fuse holders 12g ( I'm using 10amp fuses in both )


Note* as you can see,I had to use white wire for alot of my connections, this made it slightly harder to remember where things went, this is why I recommend 25' of red,white and green this way you won't run out part way through building your harness

221 viewsThere are 6 bolts to remove. this shows the 3 of these, the other side has them in the same locations. They will be 9/16ths in size, unless they were changed on the later vans. A swivel helps some with the top bolts.
