It's been covered before but a second (or third...) approach is always welcome. Use the search to find the other DIY(s) and see if yours is different enough that it would be useful. Maybe adding your experiences to the existing DIY(s) will be enough. Your call.

I _think_ it's been covered before but I may be thinking of retro-fitting DRL to older 370Zs. Search is your friend.

^Yup there are 2 DIY's but like SouthArk mentioned... the more methods the better understanding people (like me) will have before tackling the DIY.

i will load all my pics tonight and share the info.

basically we found the 2 main wires that suply power out of the IPDM located near the battery. unplugged from the IPDM and found an on/off ign.powered relay port and ran the wires direct.

ign on= DRL on all the time.

86/87 red/beige, side by side IPDM wires out of IPDM for both DRL.
splice together and then direct power to empty relay port in IPDM. DONE!

pics to follow
