Any auto parts chain store should have basic 5-pin automotive relays, and possibly a wiring socket for them.

I kno. But Radioshacc n Napa are the closest ones to me,so thats what I went with. I knew O'Reilly had them but I just didnt wanna take the drive there just for the relays. Lol. Ended up making a bad call on that one. Hah.

Drl success!!

Well, Finally had the time yesterday to wire everything up and clean like. Purchased the correct relays after returning my other ones. Good thing I like about these relays is that it came with the wired relay connector ,as mmceorange mentioned earlier,which made it not look as messy.

So now,my drls turn on when the handbrake is released and turn off when the headlights are switched on. Wired up my resistors as well so bye bye hyperflash and just as well because I was noticing that the hyperflash was making the white part of the switchbaccs fliccer when illuminated for some reason. Resistors have since solved that issue.

Big thanks to @mralexsays & @mmceorange for all the help. Will get a quick sample vid when time permits. Appreciate all the help and patience guys.

Now onto modding my sidemarkers with some switchbacc led strips i picced up. Think I may need to pic up an extra set of smoked sidemarkers just in case. Haha.
