GE Nighthawks, as recommended by lighting guru Daniel Stern.

Thanks for posting about the GE Nighthawks, IMO Stern's word is golden.

+1 for the GE Nighthawks.

Philips XTremeVision are good too.

To improve visibility, go for a +90% or higher bulb with an unfiltered glass envelope. ie no blue filter which actually cuts some lumens output/lux. Both the Nighthawks and the XtremeVision have unfiltered envelopes.

How does one go about obtaining said BH1976 relay kit?


Didn't find in member list.


Thanks

And he hasn't posted in a long time. You can also try GoldPanther on CVN or CVNw. He makes harnesses and his quality is superb.

Yes, almost 4 months to the day after they broke it. Seems to be fine now.
