    Hey there Cruiser Fans.
    I just installed Christo's upgrade headlight harness and I had a question.
    Where are you supposed to route the section of wire between the two headlights? I wasn't too sure so I unbolted the steel cross member that the radiator, horn, hood latch, ect hang off of and routed the wire under there. It looks good, however, I have no idea how much heat the top front of the radiator throws off and if the new wires will be safe up there.
    Thanks for any insight you all can provide.
    By the way, big improvement in light output--well worth the money.

    CJ,
    I routed it through some black wire loom underneath the front brace and in front of the radiator. Removal of the brace wasn't necessary.

    I agree that it is a worthwhile upgrade.
