    Is anyone familiar with these headlight system components from an “upgraded” headlight found on my TR6? Left headlight shorts the fuse when plugged in and I’d like to find a schematic for this product to check the wiring who’s is obviously screwed up some where.

    Looks like maybe a High Intensity Discharge (HID) type lighting system is all I think I know....

      I think I would try removing all the added wiring and reconstruct the original headlight set up for starters.
      Are the headlights themselves "upgraded"?

        Looks like that is what they are from the pics on the site below; the square box appears to be a ballast. I agree with BAWS, go back to original's to start, then look at your options.
