Wiring headlight circuits

Hi,

I am going the wiring myself on my Triumph TR6. The original harness was shot, so I decided to wire the whole thing myself. So far I have the car completely done, it works and all is well.

I wired the headlight circuit (headlights as well as the driving lights) hot all the time. I mean, I have a switch, relays, the works. I wired this so that the ignition switch does NOT have to be ON in order for the lights to work if the light switch is pulled.

Is this the proper way to wire this, or do you guys have that circuit on a switched hot lead?

joe

Doc here,

Sounds all good to me..the builder doesn't even put headlights on a switched circuit..if your using relays, then your one up over stock
