Arrow Wiring couplings for hella lamps?

Anyone know where I can buy some couplings that I can use to make all my lights quick-disconnect? I need to get a couple that are for single lights (connect two wires) and one that will do 8 for the row up top.

?

Hmm, I know you can get the single light ones at Autozone for relitively cheap and they are outdoor automotive grade so they are good in the rain. For the top the first thing that comes to mind would be to use a trailer connector of somesort. You can always combine all the grounds into one pin as long as it is rated for the current.

You can purchase the Hella Wire Harness that comes with the quick disconnects (2 of them). I have a few in stock, let me check the price and see what your D90Source discount would be. I'll get back to you later today.

This is what I used to bring all of my electrical components together (http://www.connex-electronics.com/ht...e/pp_main.html). Some assembly required, but you can color code each lead so that you may identify which one belongs to a specific device. If you'd like I can post some pictures of my set up. Currently my Hella 4K's, rear work lamp, cigar lighter, aux. 12V supply, GPS, CB, and soon my Ham are all routed through a single quick disconnect. Of course this is after they run through a fuse and/or relay. I did the same for the hot leads for all of the above as well.

Let me know if you need some pictures. The pics on the website above don't really provide scale.

Regards

DJ

I used the GM connectors. I purchased them locally at On Track. It is a race car shop. I think that the connectors are a little pricey for what you get, but they seem to be very good. I made it so I could remove my front ARB without removing the hella's. WHY? I don't know, but I do not want to look back and wish I had!
