I would say that if your replacing the whole of the Loom, then yes, this Fuse / Relay box is ideal and you should be able to do away with the existing Relay quite easily... You would need a Switch Over Relay which looking at this Box will fit, I've just done a conversion, but I was using all the old wiring, so I can go back to standard easily. If you're doing this from scratch, you could use a Single NO Relay to trigger the Power for the Main Flash through the Switch Over Relay. I fitted a 30a NO Relay and a 30a / 40a Switch Over Relay, so there is plenty in reserve even with all 4 Units lit for Dip & Main. Also use the Diode Relays, just saves any nasty feed back!!!

Though the electrical system on a Capri is basic I feel it is reasonably tidy and well designed compared to a lot of older cars. Im in the midst of replacing an after market fusebox on my 2.8 with the original fusebox and cover. Though I am planning a headlamp upgrade I will keep the additional relays I need for this out of sight.
