Re: [DML] Headlight Switch

Ive found this 'headlight switch saver kit' very easy to install with 
the great installtion instructions.  Not sure what the difference is 
between this kit and other ones that some vendors supply but this is 
the one i have been reccomending and ive not heard of any bad reports 
on it.

the phone with John a couple of times because the instructions vary 
depending on the build of the car. Mine was, of course, the other 
build. The LEDs will reduce the current through the switch thereby 
reducing the potential for heat. Barring a short in the wiring 
somewhere else they should reduce the potential for switch problems.
