while your doing this, you can use the factory fog light jewel in the cluster.

with the switch, you'll have to make a small circuit to handle the current, either way you need to use a relay or an entire circuit if using a momentary switch.

i was planning on using the fog light jewel, but i was going to upgrade to the fairlane cluster also, does this have a fog light jewel and is it the same deal with adding the resistor if its from an NL?

ive seen some driving light kits at auto barn that have a wiring diagram on the back of it which uses a relay and a switch, if i wire it the same way but use the antenna switch instead of the switch they provided will this work?

and lastly these kits are 100W lights, is that going to be too bright or just right?

I used the washer/wiper switch from a wagon, it is an on off switch and will be better suited that the momontery antenna switch or you could use the demister which I think is on / off, better check that one though.

It's next to the smartlock caption on the LHS. Don't remember from memory, but the circuit tracks are easy enough to trace back to the pins.

Nope, this ones momentary.

Power antenna switch will be fine - you can also use a column shift auto Economy switch.
