I use to pick them up at RadioShack. They come with a tab to mount them with.

Lynn,

I used 30 amp rated relays for high beams, low beams, radiator fan, wipers, and fuel pump. Horn relay was provided in the Painless Wiring fuseblock.

Relays and connectors from ebay. Ten each for some rediculously low price. My relays each have a predrilled plastic tab to mount them to a panel or other mounting point.

Main power to each relay is protected by a separate 20 amp self resetting breaker from Delcity.net. Delcity also sells a convenient metal strip that the circuit breakers snap into.

16 AWG wire running to each load.

Cheers,

Rick

Put together a list of any electrical items you think you might need (wire, connectors, relays, shrink wrap, solder, etc.) and order them from partsexpress.com

If you just need relays, and want them today, radio shack.

When buying relays, you may also want to look at the relay harness. Makes it a lot easier to replace a relay if you need to and is usually only a couple of bucks. Plus, they typically snap together so you can create a relay block that is easy to mount and looks neater. $.02
