Re: My new lightbar

Won't I need a rely for them to work? I'll have to dig through some stuff in the shed to see if I have the basic bits to rig up something this weekend. There is no reason they are not working, my only issue is there are a sealed beam with no seperate bulbs so could be pricy to replace. Thus the nee...

Re: My new lightbar

Dumb question but is there any easy way to test the spot lights I have? Not used them in years and right now I've got nothing wired up but I might have enough bits to rig up something over the weekend. They are GE sealed beams about 110mm across. (I'll post a photo later today) EDITED... I checked ...

Re: My new lightbar

Right now I'm on the fence for my spots v a new light bar. Lights beat LED's anytime,they don't have the distance of a good pair of driving lights. I beg to differ Grab a decent led bar eg Stedi and see what world of difference it makes. Maybe if your out rally driving it may make a difference but ...

Re: My new lightbar

I have the exact same warranty by the sounds of it. I just felt it would be safer to swap it back for the service. I enjoy playing around with the car anyway. I got a few more things I might do but nothing major.

Re: My new lightbar

I considered it but I didn't want to wait for the switch to arrive. I also still have warranty on my car and didn't want to void it by playing with those sorts of electricals, they'll void it whenever possible these day's. I had my custom muffler made up so I can easily change it back for my warrant...

Re: My new lightbar

And as for the light bar I used, I don't think it's sold any more but it was a top quality one. The one you linked had a polycarbonate lens and was ~7400 lumen. The one I used was a glass lenses, about ~8400 lumens and completely waterproof. I'd be too scared to put one that low to the ground if it ...

Re: My new lightbar

I had a spare one at home that had been sitting under the bench for ages, I used it because it was stainless but also because all the other steel I had wasn't long enough (i couldn't mount the bar far enough back so I couldn't fit the grille back on). Any L brackets would work though, as long as the...

This is what I used to mount it, I just cut the bar off the front and mounted it backwards. It's just bolted between here the bumper connects to the subframe.

Re: My new lightbar

I'm not too sure on the height of if but I measured as twin row that was 75mm so I assume it's probably 60-65mm. I'm not too sure if the spots would fit but if they did its not too hard to adjust. There's 5 clips under the front of the car, just take those out and adjust from the bottom. It's mounte...

Re: LED Light Bar

I'm just about to write up a post about how I mounted a light bar in a way that not many people can see if you're interested. I'll add the link in a second once it's done.
