hello all. today i decided to install some driving lights because on my way home from work at night, i drive on exclusively 2 lane hilly back roads that are covered by trees.
i started by making some mounts out of some $1.50 fence brackets. with a c-clamp, my porch and a crescent wrench
then i ran the wiring (not pictured) behind all the panels, and up to the garage door opener panel. i made it ground switched because i didnt want to have hot wires ran behind the panels. i also ran this wire thru the ground switched headlights. that way the driving lights cant be turned on without the low beams. this wire went to a relay, ran the same as this diagram. just substitute the "horn" for a switch, and the "compressor" for the lights.
i then drilled the hole, and mounted the switch.
then i used some zip screws to attach the mounts to the bumper.
and bolted on the lights
then i hooked up the wires. all my connections were made with terminations and shrink wrap so i can easily replace them without risking the weatherproofing.
only thing left to do was try em out!
the switch illuminates even though its ground switched. not exactly sure how, but everything works so its cool by me
and lastly, a video of the lows alone, and the lows+ the driving lights.
any comments/ constructive criticism welcome!
6000k headlights, LED license plate fog lights, tinted taillights and to top it all off, 2 12" air horns!
