Then made two seperate wiring harnesses for high and low beam with 10ga wire and big sealed Hella relays.
(This is only the low beam harness.)
Installed. (Again only the low beam harness in the pic)
I did the high beam tonight.
Everything works like a charm.
And doing the harnesses just about doubled the light out of the headlights.
Over 14 volts at the bulb running.
At least after I figured out how Subaru did the stock headlight wiring. Hint: the + is common, the - is switched.
And you have to seperate them as in trigger the high beams off the inner high beam stock wiring, and the low beams off the outer low beam wiring.
Don't just use the outer headlight plug ti trigger both high and low.
Otherwise things tend to crossflow and it all comes on with the low beams.
I would explain more but plenty of how to's can be found on the net for heavy duty headlight harnesses and then you just have to break out the voltmeter and figure out your terminals.
I had some links but they are not on this computer.
Anyway, it's nice to have an even beam pattern with a sharp cutoff.

Curious what yoru ride was like with honda coilovers and be specific on what your setup was. Lots of people want to go lower but its kinda dificult to achieve easily.
They are really bouncy So if you have bad roads, not a good idea. Just mounted instead of the stock springs on your shocks. Don't fit 100% right, but with some mods you can make it work.

You have to drill the bolt holes a bit bigger. The EJ tube has an o-ring slot. You might be able to find a big enough o-ring to seal it. I didn't and was in a hurry, so I simply made a gasket for the engine / oil fill tube.

Swapped welded rear in. Rebuilt both rear axles put one in. Rebuilt front right cv. Car got in a bit of a wreck so figuring out how I'm going to put Toyota corrolla head lights on car. Built a winch bumper, finishing welding it on the brackets then rear bumper. Pictures when it looks a little better.
Right on! I wanna see this!

Yes painted it with regular spray paint (for-exterior-plastic application) Valspar brand. Primed it first. The dash involved taping newspaper to the windshield and trash bags in the compartment area. one coat of primer and two coats of paint done with one can of primer and two cans of the tan paint.
For the detailed tricky areas, I sprayed paint into the cap and used a small paint brush.
But all the rest was piece of cake disassembly and paint away...
