64 parking lights.

Whats the easiest way make them stay on with the headlamps? Do i have to rewire them all or is it a switch thing?

You are going to have to install additional wiring (with termination) and a relay to get that functionality.

Tap onto the low beam power terminal to activate the relay if you want the parking lights to be on with on with low beams. To get it to stay on all the time the lights are on tap into the rear tail light wiring to activate the parking lights. To power the parking lights that extra wire you got goes between the battery and the two parking lights controlled (energized) by a relay (when the relay receives power from the low beam or the tail light).
