Re: 67 RS head light doors
I installed their system on my 67 RS. My original RS headlights operated randomly in a good and a bad way :-) Sometimes the limiting switches wouldn't completely register the door opening etc. and the motors would start making awful noises. I was really happy to get rid of that cluster of wiring, switches and relays.
Per Retro's recommendations, I installed 2 headlight Bosch style relays to drive low and high beam lights with the direct battery fused 12v. The system is smart enough to know when the doors are jammed, for example, and it won't drain your battery. The installation took me almost a day due to rewiring the relays and mounting their motors (quite powerful in comparison to the old Camaro ones).
Overall, I am very satisfied with their product, because it reliably works and I don't have to worry if my lights' doors opened on the freeway or not.
Good luck with your project!
