I got a third eye for Christmas. Can I put it on my '85 Brat GL without cutting up the current grill? The car is offsite for winter storage (this is Minnesota) so I can't mock it up. Also where does the switch go on the dash? I didn't get a switch or wiring to the 5 pin connector on the third eye unit. Is a wiring diagram available? Thanks in advance.

It is my understanding the central/passing light only came on models with single/dual headlights, never on the quad arrangement as you have. So the grille will need to be modified/cut to work.

You must trim a 4-beam grill to fit the center lamp.

 

The switch mounts to the left of the steering column, in one of the holes by your left knee.

 

There should be a diagram in the USRM.

My daughter who gave it to me for Christmas said that the owner who sold it to her told her that it was from an 1982 Brat GL which would mean quad headlights.

Well if that's what some stranger told your daughter, who told you, who is telling us, then it must be correct.  Post pics once you've got it all mocked up!

I'm still waiting to see it mocked up on a stock, quad-beam '83+ GL front end....  Cuz that's how they came, right?

Car is still in storage and out of reach. I'm working on getting the wiring and dash switch.
