It seems I must pull the fuses one by one until I get to the low beams. Maybe if I can do the high beams as well, that would be really cool.

I used Comic Life on an iMac at my college library. I'm sure similar programs are available for Windows, and this wasn't as feature-packed as I had expected, but it worked, right? Thanks for the comments on that. Anyone notice the Bonneville Front pun?

The caps that cover the fused are labled in the cap cover and underneath the fuse block itself.

If your going to do the HI beams, I am going to suggest that you tackle this underneath the dash where the HI / LOW beam switch is

What kind of aftermarket lights are you looking to add, and what wattage are the bulbs?

If you use the light wire to trigger a relay..there is enough resistance to set off the DH. When I say DH..yes...I'm leaving it as initials because the DIC is great when used from the factory...but after that.. it'* a DH.
