Our Infinitybox system can be used to wire practically anything in your restoration, pro-touring car or race car. Here’s another great example. Kyle Tucker’s team at Detroit Speed, Inc. have a long history of innovation. They sell a wide array of products for muscle cars from the mid-1960’s into the early 1980’s. One of their most popular products to our customers is their Electric RS Headlight Door Kit. This lets you replace the vacuum actuated headlight door mechanism on your 1968 or 1969 Camaro RS. You can get more information on the kit here.
The Detroit Speed Headlight Door Kit gives you everything that you’d need to replace the mechanisms to open and close the headlight doors. It is well engineered and comes with a great set of instructions. You can download them here. This kit is easy to install and even easier to wire when you are using our Infinitybox 10 or 20-Circuit Harness Kit.
The Detroit Speed Headlight Door Kit needs to get a signal when the parking lights are on and when the headlights are on. Depending on which lights are on, the kit will open and close the headlight doors. With a traditional wiring harness, you would need to run wires from the headlight switch on the dash all the way forward to the headlights. With the Infinitybox system, power for the lights and the Headlight Door Kit comes locally from the POWERCELL mounted in the front of the car. The following diagram shows how you connect your front POWERCELL to the connector on the Detroit Speed Headlight Door Kit. Essentially, you splice off the parking light and head light output wires from the front POWERCELL and connect these wires to the parking light and headlight terminal on their controller. Remember, that this is coming from the POWERCELL not the MASTERCELL.
The Detroit Speed Headlight Door Kit needs to get a constant power feed from the battery. You can connect this directly to the battery or use one of our POWERPLUGs to get fused battery power locally from the POWERCELL.
