Hooking up Delta Bumper Fog Light Upgrades

I posted last week about my fog light housings melting. I bought the Delta Xenon upgrade kit since I liked my headlight upgrades, it seemed like a safe bet. My problem now is the switch. I really don't want another switch until I start adding lights. I found some old posts that said I could wire up the harness and run my stock hot wire to the relay and continue using the factory switch instead of the delta switch. It sounds perfect in theory but all the posts were old so I was wondering if there was a problem found with doing this or it's just that much of a no brainer? I do it but I hate working on electric and usually keep it simple when I do. I'm putting them in tomorrow so any quick feedback is appreciated.

No problem and is a good way to wire it. Power from the battery to the relay and then to the fogs. Negative from battery to fogs. Old hot wire to the fogs run to the control pin on the relay post 30 IIRC. solder the connections and use dielectric grease on all connections especially the fog harness

One more question for the sake of simplicity can I use the factory ground wires to ground the new lights? I'll use them if I can or take them out all together.

It's better to run directly to battery.
