    Hi Delfinis . I will get some tape . Still need to keep the relays out of harms way though .

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    Rob mine are in a box. Nice and dry but the fuses are exposed. They're the splashproof ones but even these got moisture in them.
    I've replaced the failed fuse holder but will cover it with some grease to keep it waterproof. Some silicone grease will be fine. I'll post up some pics shortly including the burnt fuse holder

    What sort of box are you using Hasan ?. My fuses seem to be stuck in the air so I don’t have a problem with them .

    I'm using an small household electrical junction box for my relays and fuses. Mounted on the inner wing next to the battery.

    I believe someone on here was producing the three relay version for the corrado... I think his name on here is Kur2y

    The idea for using three relays is one relay is for the dip and the other two are for the off side and near side main beams, if one of the main beam relays or its fuse fails you still have the other one to light the way home.

    The more common two relay loom is just a cut down version and if your main beam relay or fuse fails on the move your buggered.
    Both loom versions work but its down to personal choice at the end of the day.

    If you keep your original connectors to switch the relay it's also simple to re-connect the original loom if anything fails on the new one in an emergency.

    True, But my point is.. if like me you live in a rural area with unlit roads with plenty of bends and if both your main beams go in the dark its a bad situation when on the move.. better to have the safety margin of a three relay loom, but yes always keep your original loom and connectors intact.
