I'm going through the process of rewiring my 78 2+2 with the ez wiring 21 circuit kit. Two questions, which circuits need relays and which circuits would you add relays? Thanks in advance.

This should answer the first part - http://www.atlanticz...280Z_wiring.pdf

 

Many people add relays to the headlight and the running light circuits, to take the load off of the switch on the top of the steering column.

Im with z mouse on that one, im in the processes of rewiring my 260 right now with a modified stock harness, adding in a total of 12 relays. 

{ 2 head lights, 2 front blinkers, 1 wiper motor, 1 washer pump, 1 tail light, 1 AC, 1 reverse lights, 2 rear blinkers, 1 radio) maybe i don't have enough........ but on my 240 the indicator switch started melting, so id rather not live though that again.

I have relays for the electric fan, starter, high/low beams and running lights.
