Default Installing Light Kit G16

Hi. I bought a light kit for my 1997 G16 gas model. The instructions are terrible, at least for me. I need some help.

Where do I run the cables. Is there a best way or place? Do I get underneath the cart to run them, or can I access places from above? Where is the best place for the switch? Anything I should avoid? Best places to attach them?

What is the best way to cut the holes for the headlights and taillights? The kit comes with a template, but what have you found to be the best tool[s] and method[s]?

Any hints or suggestions? This is something I've never done or tried, so any help would mean a lot.

Thanks, guys. This is really a great place for someone like me.

Ed

Hi Ed, under the cart is probably the best place for the wires. The switch can go pretty much anywhere, dash panel. To cut the holes you can use a roto zip type tool, air grinder with rotary file, Drill holes and cut with a jab saw, or I like to use an old kitchen knife and heat it up red hot, this will cut the plastic a bit slower but you will have more control and less mess.

I just installed my light kit last night. The template is a good guide but not right on the money. I used a dremel tool to cut out and to shape the hole to make the light fit just right. My body is off so, routing the wires was pretty easy. Just don't run the wires where they will rub and use some larger wire ties to keep any wires from gettting snagged.
