She's got new lights new. A pair of light force and what a worthwhile upgrade.

The lights came with the Mahindra Classic I had recently re-purchased back.

Here's the thread for that:

Fit the KC Lights in the classic as a swap.

Got the wiring sorted in the Pajero.

I have too many lights in the vehicle - Light force, Roo lights, reverse lights, awning lights, etc.

I thought that instead of using the power from the existing starter socket, I'd run it direct from battery.

This was so that I don't stress the thinner ignition cables.

The best place to do it was Fours Seasons, Mahalaxmi, Mumbai.

Expensive labour, but what a fantastic job they did.

Main wire with master fuse in green connected to battery:

Negative terminal:

Cut outs nicely fixed:

Individual Fuses (just need to label them now):

Master Cut off:

This last one is the goof up they did. Since the connection was direct from battery, I needed a master cut off because the morning washer may inadvertently switch on some switches while cleaning and it would drain the battery. So I had requested a master cut off in the cabin. However, for some reason, he put it in the engine bay.

This would be a headache where I would need to stop the car, switch it on and then remember to switch off again after the drive and keep opening the bonnet.

Once I get time, I will go an relocate the switch to inside the cabin.

Also got the horn changed to Skoda one. I love that sound.
