Rear window defroster relay '69-'73

I originally installed my Delta CDIs (Capacitive Discharge Ignition) in that 
cubbyhole, but that was way too much trouble and I got in trouble when 
water got in there, when the car was old and no longer waterproof.

And, with some creativity, a second battery, in parallel to the first.

I can't hear the direction either, probably because the first click comes from 
both directions at once. And quick sounds are often hard to directionalize.
