Geez, I'm full of questions

I used the Spade connectors that came on the lights and harness. The connection is tucked up behind the radiator plastic panels. Seems waterproof.

Why use a switch if you are using the lights for conspicuousness? I wired the relay trigger to the rear brake power.

Those light are really bright and the beam not well defined. I have mine aimed down quite a bit. I wouldn't use them for supplemental lighting they would blind oncoming drivers.
