2 lights to one relay. Put an inline fuse as close to the battery as possible. Wire the relay to your parking lights so you don't accidentally leave them on. This is a pretty good simple diagram to go off of. Obviously your lights will be on the roof.

You could probably get them there. I'd check out an electronics store before Radio Shack. Just make sure they have a good enough amperage rating for your application.
