I'm going to be building a headlamp relay harness to fix the sub-par wiring our Metros and Swifts came with.

This simple kit will include:
Wire harness made from 12 gauge wire
2 SPDT 30/40 amp automotive relays
10 zip ties
2 self tapping screws (To mount relays on firewall)
1 Replacement bolt (Relay positive to under-hood distribution block)
Bulbs and harness will be protected by 2 15 amp inline fuses
Detailed step by step installation instructions with photos

Each harness is hand built and tested by me personally on my very own daily driver.
Direct fit to all 95-01, composite, sealed beam, H4 conversion? You name it, I'll build it!

All kits can easily handle 100+ watt bulbs high and\or low beams :deal

Price for just 1 of these run upwards of $40 before shipping so I'd like to see a group buy.

I need 10 participants willing to spend $30 plus shipping for one of these kits.
I can do reduced shipping if you need more than one kit.


Who's interested? Expected ship date is 2-3 weeks after 10th person pays for their kit.

I don't have pics, I haven't build the final kit yet. Relays are the same ones Scoobs bought a large pack of awhile back.

Shipping will probably be flat rate, but I need to know location of most buyers before I can set a shipping rate or I maybe do $35 shipped?

The wire I use is 12 awg 100% OFC, the kit is good for 2 130+ watt bulbs so no need for higher quality wire.

It may fit a 1993, but I don't have a Metro older than 1995 so I can't promise it will. Best I can say is it SHOULD fit.


If no one feels safe buying before seeing pics I understand. If 10 of you will pay 50% of final cost I can build the first few kits to get photos. BUT until then, I don't have pics and can't get them until I have deposits.
(my cost to build all 10 of these is over $200, I can't take a chance on that kinda cash if no one wants the kits)

you have to have built a prototype or one for yourself. SO post pictures of that.

lets be honest. your charging $30 for around $6 to $8 in stuff. now that is not actually a bad deal. most of the cost here is the labor and not having to do it oneself. but its also not "so" difficult we can't do it ourselves. but if the quality is good enough and it looks nice etc.. I will gladly pay $30 to not have to do it myself :-)

wire quality is less about amperage and more about abuse and corrosion and the elements over time IE want it to last :-)

Cost to build just 1 is ridiculous, if I already had large stock of parts yes they would be made cheap but when you have to buy almost all the parts; bulk is the only cost effective route. To build all 10 I would have to spend roughly $230 just to assemble them, not including packaging and shipping costs. In the end, if I can sell 10 in a group buy I'll make maybe $30-60 profit or just enough to build myself a kit.

A member here was wanting me to build them one and with the price of parts I figured a group buy was a much better idea.

If anyone is willing to play guinea pig and eat the costs for the first one I'll gladly post all the pics you want. :)
