Re: Headlights Revisited
I was looking at the Sylvania cool blue sealed beam replacement H-4s today. The jobber wanted $18.50 CDN, which ought to be @ $11 American these days. He claims to have used them on his Areostar and says they were awesome. I've only got a year on my Sylvania ExtraVisions so I won't be buying the cool blues anytime soon.
I bought 3 relays(one to keep the lows on when the highs are on) at @$3.95 CDN each, 3 relay pigtails @ $2.95 CDN each, one 30 amp ATO line fuse @ $3.45 CDN, two headlight sockets @ $2.99 CDN and a three 25 foot coils of 12 gauge for @ $6.00 CDN (though one would have done).
So yeah I had @ $40.00 CDN in the harnesses I made up. Granted I already had the convolute tube, larger #12 terminals, silicone, dielectic grease, etc.
$35.00 American sounds pretty good with all that stuff.
The toughest thing was not being able to fine headlight socket terminals to fit the 12 gauge wire, but that soldering trick I outlined in the other headlight thread worked even better.
