Re: [DML] Bright Lights behind AC Control

One more reminder to add to Elvis' recommendation:

Make sure to "cut" the center spade off and do not
try to "bend and break" it off with pliers, etc.

Several DeLorean owners tried the bend and break
method a few years ago and there appeared to be a
rather high failure rate to the relay after the
bend and break stresses are applied to the relay.

A high-speed cut-off tool works very well and if
you do not own one, borrow one to do this mod.
