Hi, i've worked out that if i add an earth to 87a on the fog light relay,i can run the driving lights with headlights and can also be easily removed if the need be,
my question is, has anyone with a vr/vs ss hooked it up so the driving and headlights are on together with out melting any wiring/wrecking anything?
i see vr/vs's like this all the time but 1) i dont know how theirs is wired up in the first place and 2)i dont want to go ahead and do it and melt the headlight switch etc

Depending on where you live though, this is illegal.

Why do want your spotties, foggies etc to be on all the time with your headlights? I've seen tossers running their spofoggies in broad daylight around town with no headlights.:supersad::hmmm: WTFF??????
A huge wank if you ask me. :ranting:
Put big globes in them, aim them correctly, wire them into your high beam, and they'll give you much more value and better light coverage. They can be used for fog and on high beam with lots of road coverage for the bits your headlights don't get.:spot on: And they won't melt as they have glass lenses in them.
Modern day bullshit, a bit like a hundred LEDs for park lights, and asking for a fine.:cops:
OK. Ready:flame::flame::flame::flame:

i know these big bad laws stopping us from doing what we want when we want... suck it up. seriously go whinge in the pub section..

even foggies pointed in the wrong direction can blind other drivers, they dont have to be 100w globes to blind ppl, and most of them are installed by DIY installers and garrantee they're not correctly positioned.

i agree totally, the reason i have wired mine up to work with lows, is i do a heap of regional trips and i want to see any roos on the side road and a lil furture up the road and without having to dip my hi's and losing 80% light for oncoming cars, a few near misses makes you super pariniod!
