Late last year I began running down the parts I needed to upgrade my headlight wiring on my ’84 Ford- it’s never failed, but with winter comes boredom, and I drove it from my presence by planning for and purchasing the parts necessary to complete the conversion. First, I assembled the headlight terminals by installing the open barrel terminals onto the wires:
I may solder the terminals as well, we’ll see.
Next, I installed the terminals into the ceramic headlamp socket:
Then I slid the plastic protector onto the socket,
And it’s complete:
I’ve also installed the relays and fuse holders onto the truck’s inner fender, using the same open barrel crimper I used for the headlight sockets:
When I’m finished, this mess of wiring will be loomed and it’ll look factory again.
