Hi All,

I am slowly getting ready to do an install of twin rear lights. Using a ferret tools twin light carrier and 2 55w LED floods.

I am going to go it as per the below diagram - I hope it is logical! (and correct)



Couple of stupid questions;
1) Do the relays need to be close to the lights, or batt?
2) Will 4mm twin core be sufficient?
3) Can 4mm twin core be used for both the hot wire and switching?

I am trying to get it done as neatly as possible, having read Leethal's post I have become inspired to conquer 12 wiring!

Thanks for reading and hopefully providing insight.

All looks fairly good, 4mm should be fine for what your doing but you'll only need one relay for the 2 lights. I always put the relays under the bonnet myself, keeps everything together and close at hand.

The relays for my "worklight" are mounted in the panel next to the jack. I have a twin 10mm cable running to that corner for fridge and accessories so it made sense to use it.

Thanks for the replies.

I'll post some photo's when I am done.

Not sure it will be up to Leethal's standard - but i'll get there!

Last question, can a simple 3 pin 3 way switch - Narva 63041BL work? (2 Acc 1 power)

Or do I need the more complicated (to me) 63106BL. (4 acc and 2 power)

Thanks again.

The three pin will be fine in this instance :)
