I am just about to add two 6v relays (for high and low beams) on a 6v 1960 Ghia in order to get as much juice out to the lights as possible.

After scouring the posts here, I think I have the theory right but I'm little shaky on the actual actuals -and I want to make absolutely freakin sure before I start taking things apart and splicing into this new harness.

Please check my home work and feel free to offer any tips or warnings

I'm planning on using three of these early fuse boxes:

and to answer your question, I really don't know why I haven't switched to a 12v system yet, stubborn i guess but this process just may make me.
