Headlights Relay Install, anyone done it?

I am wrestling if or if not to attempt a headlights relay install. The high beam is no big problem, other than finding space, you can get H9 male/ female extensions that will work to connect to the relay. However the sealed low beam H7 can only be properly connected on the outside of the housing. There is a sealed 2 pin connector, see below. Anybody fingered out where to get such a set of connectors?

If Eastern Beaver has a relay/harness kit available I highly recommend it. Better quality than OEM and plug and play.

I know, I have various harnesses for my WEE and the rear harness for the V2. He has no front headlight harness for the V2. I just asked him about it but no answer as of now. That's why I am looking for help to see if somebody has figured it out.

Seems there have been no reports of connector or switch failures related to the headlights for the V2 but I try to play it safe and not having to worry about it in future.

Maybe with the single headlight up front you don't need to worry about it? Just switch to LED and call it done.
