Long Island electrical work.

Hey everyone,

Let me start off by saying that I am in no way electrically inclined. I recently bought some Hella 500ff and 700ff lights for the bumper as well as a set of cheap tractor lights to use as reverse lights. Now comes the problem, the instructions for the Hella's are like German to me (and I do not speak German) and the reverse lights didn't come with anything. I've seen on the forum posts where people have tried to simplify the wiring diagram but even that is too complicated for me.

So now I need to know the best option as far as what to do. Is there anyone on Long Island that is familiar with what I am looking for? Maybe someone with a shop that doesn't want to charge $250 to do a little work.

Or perhaps is there an easier way to explain it to me, I am a college grad, but perhaps if you pretend I'm 7 years old and try explaining it that way it might help.

So I'll start off with this what is the simplest way to install the Hella's? I'd prefer not to have to run them into the high beams so I can switch them on whenever I wanted but if I have to then I can.

Also what is the easiest way to connect the reverse lights so they come on only when I'm going backwards?

Any info would be appreciated but any offers to come help would be best.

Thanks in advance.

Fog light set-up.
