I just called the place that makes them. They said they wire them up all the time with out a relay switch. He said there is plenty of room to put one in the light if I wanted to though.

This relay light stuff is all new to me, maybe someone could recommend what relay would be good to buy?

See their Skull Air breather?
Also with that headlight, looking at the fact that you can change the angle of the low beam, it still looks like mounted, you would be shining the light right into the back of the teeth of the skull... I am surprised that on their site they haven't shown a night shot, to see light dispersement, because even those highbeams, look like they are aimed and angled upward. You should check to make sure that these are functional and not merely for show. The halogen bulbs that they show look like the ones from my Interior home track and pot lighting, not sure how they stand up to the elements...
Just sayin'

I just ordered it, I'll do a thread when I get it. I am sure I'll have to do a little modification to make that light in the mouth the right angle. It looks like I should be able to make up a different mount to lower the light so I can angle it correctly and maybe move it more towards the mouth. I dunno, I'll play around with it and see what I can do.

The lights in the eyes do look like lights you would use in your house. I guess there is only one way to find out how they will hold up. Looks like i'll be the guinea pig lol.

gmck: The 2 100watt lights are the high beams, so if they are not on during start up it wouldn't strain the start switch right? Or am I thinking of some thing else?
Make sure to tell us when you get pulled over!
