Bugsy's Headlights are like all Spridgets almost useless at night and I am 
planning on installing relays to help things out. Any recommendations on best 
  For anyone who has installed relays, did it improve interior lamp / dash lamp 
brightness once the headlight load was taken away or is it recommended that a 
relay be installed for the dash lamps as well. I know there is a piece of 
plastic in each lamp to diffuse the light. Any good sources for something to 
replace that plastic.
  I'm thinking the switch on the side of the instrument column on my '68 that 
turns off the dash lamps would be a good place to pick up the electrical feed 
for the dash lamps. Any other suggestions on where to pick up the circuit.
