We can then run and terminate the headlight wires with the sockets provided in the kit. The individual lead is for the parking light that is in the headlight assembly. The driver side headlight bucket has twice the wires because they go there first and then jumper over to the passenger side. Before reinstalling the seal beams, we epoxied a rubber pad to the back of the fender cavity to help prevent any possible wire chaffing.

While wiring up front, we connected the turn signals... ...and the brake switch and the horn (not shown).

Running the wiring to the back end, we found that a left over piece of the heavy 10 gauge primary battery feed wire came in handy. We fished it through the body easier than small wires and then pulled the whole bunch in one shot. The taillights get wired just like the front end. Wires on this driver side get jumper wired over to the passenger side and to the license plate light.

Don't forget the dome light. We put these wires inside some heavy wall shrink tubing and used the old wires to pull the new wires through the body. Up front again, we added new terminals to the steering column wires...

...then routed them to our new 4-way hazard switch relay and on to the turn signal leads. We're using a neat little toggle switch to activate the 4-ways. Toggle, relay and all are also StreetWorks items and are much more straight forward than the original stuff. Let's not forget the dash lights, turn indicators and generator light.

All of those tie-wraps that come in the kit help to clean up the wiring. On the right of the photo you can see our master ground connection attached to the old flasher relay mount. Finishing up under the hood, we have added the wiper switch on the far left and an electric windshield spritzer pump close by it, tie-wrapped wires and have gotten everything except the fuse panel itself behind where a protective panel will attach. The guys are gonna' be envious of this setup.

Here is our new switch grouping - ignition, headlights and wiper switches on the bottom; the toggle over the ignition is for 4-ways and the one over the wiper is for the electrical windshield washer.
