Well, I finally figured that if I am going to bump these things on, then I wouldn't mind the high beams being on as well. So, I simply tapped the high beams and now I am done with it... Man, those things get HOT!

After all my wiring and routing last night I only had one fire up! I did a bunch of checking and figured out one of the bulbs was bad. So, I ordered a new 100w bulb and had them throw in two of the 130w bulbs That is 230w of goodness! I had a full 12+ Volts at the lamp end of the leads...

I need to double check and see if I can hack the 130w bulbs on the wiring I ran.

On a different note, the Hellas have 18-20ga wire coming off the lamp... MAYBE! Why do they call for heavier wiring on the install, doesn't the wire size determine how much power can get to the lamp? I was a little confused, I ran separate 16ga wire to each lamp but I was curious why it doesn't "bottle-neck" the power when it steps down to a smaller size?

Just curious! Oh and Dave, I would like to eventually run option #4
