Wow! You guys (especially Bruce on this topic) are a wealth of information! Thanks for all of the responses!
Being that winter has made an early appearance (it's about 30 degrees right now) and you've informed me of the correct way to redo the charging system and wire in lights, I think I'm going to make do with just a headlamp this winter. I will save this project for the warm weather when it's comfortable to be working in the garage! I'd really like to wire in the headlights, taillights and possibly some auxiliaries (provided the system could handle it ok). I'll also need to determine whether this G-10 is the snow pusher that I hope it will be before I spend the money to do a proper job. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction regarding the "right way" and saving me from crudely wiring in some temporary lights for this winter. I appreciate it
