        Was driving my road runner last night and thinking about the great improvement of this simple to install harness.

          Wow! Is my reaction every time I switch my headlights on at night.

          Along with his relay kit, I put in GE Nighthawk headlights.

            Yep, I'm very happy I did this upgrade.
            I think the lights on my Dart are now better than the lights on my modern daily driver.

              I’ve got several sets of nighthawks. I need to put a set in my Duster and see how much it improves

              Thanks for the positive comments regarding my harness.

              People will spend money on LED lights that don't work any better than a set of Nighthawks and relay kit. All good. Really bright doesn't equal good usable light. I prefer the look of a classic fluted lens as well.

              My favorite saying comes into play... Pick your parts, pay your money!

                Does anyone have a part number for the nighthawk bulbs?

                      He used to have an ad in the For sale section.
                      Basically its a plug and play realy set up. Plug the relay harness into one of the original headlight connectors. Then attach the relay power wire to the alternator output terminal. Re-install headlights.

                      Ok, I'll PM him.

                      BTW, I tried to follow the links above the the suggested headlights, but it looks like the head light everyone likes has been superseded. Or are they all using the headlight that looks like something I'd use on a sport bike??
