Here are my Hella H4's waiting to be installed in my 520. Bolt & plug in easy upgrade. Running DOT legal HB2 55w / 60w Bulbs. These bulbs only draw 5 amps continuous & 10 amps at start up, so the stock wiring is adequate. I do recommend adding head light relays though to take the load off of the headlight switch. I also re-configured the placement of the wires at the headlight plug to match the 1980 720 wiring harness.
I also drilled the holes out in the buckets for rubber grommets and installed new asphalt impregnated woven loom over the wires to help protect them.. I plan on rebuilding the front parking lamps & tail lights also.
I also picked up the rest of the paint supplies today Total for paint supplies was $385
Paint supplies included
1gallon High build primer
1 quart High build primer hardenener

The paint is a dark metalic burgundy and the truck will be 2 toned and will have some stipping on it. The silver & black metalic are for stripping & to lighten & or darken the paint.
