Wiring in headlight relays

I've ordered the Delta quad bar headlights with xenon hyper white bulbs. I know I don't have to rewire because the bulbs wattage is not that high. I would like to go ahead & rewire & install the relays needed for later upping the wattage. My question is how to make my own wiring instead of buying a kit. I don't want to cut & splice into the factory wiring. Has anyone done this? I would appreciate diagrams & where to get all the parts from anyone who has done this. Thanks!

You can buy a kit that includes everything you need except the wire at Daniel Stern Lighting, I believe it costs roughly $50.00. I opted for a pre-made harness, saved me time and money. The harness was of good quality, and simple to install with just 3 plug in connections. Plus it only took 30 min to install, no cutting or splicing required!

Here's the harness I bought:

This is a nice price for a complete kit.
