should just be positive and negative. unless you mean like you need a wiring diagram?

instead of two lights, youd just have one.

Do you know how much current they draw?That'll determine your fuse and wire size. You could look at similar applications and see what they recommend and use that wiring size.

Take the rated wattage of the lights and divide by 12, that will be maximum current. Round up to the the nearest fuse size. Get the appropriate gauge wire for the maximum current and length.

I am guessing your wattage is at 288, or around there.

30 amp fuse, minimum 12 gauge wire between battery and relay, and relay and lights. 18 gauge wire would be fine between switch and relay.
