Did a little lighting update. 70W each these suckers are bright!




I now have 3 Hella 4000 that I have converted to HID for sale.  2 pencil (6000K HID) and 1 Fog (3000K HID) if anyone is interested.

If you are interested the LED lights let me know. I can get them.

The rack looks fantastic, one of the better ones for the 1st Gen.

Still working out some issues with the wind faring. Not happy with how the faring looks, but I just trimmed it down today and it looks much better. Going to give it a few days to see if I should leave it on or not.

Light bar is definitely going back on. I've been working on fabbing up some brackets, but it's a slow process because I'm doing it between work and family obligations. They've got a couple of coats of primer on them and just need paint now. I'll re-install the front and rear light bars at the same time, and am probably going to consider a new solution for the side facing lights. Planning on getting an ARB awning within the next few weeks, so I might wait until I have that installed before I tackle side lighting.

Still working through some issues with the wind faring. I trimmed it down and it looks 1,000,000 times better, but now it's REALLY noisy at freeway speed. I'm going to try and strengthen the top of it with a rigid piece of metal as a backer, or possibly add more brackets, or possibly relocate it so it sits at a lower angle and comes up into the bottom of the rack. If none of that works, it's coming off which will leave me with a wire management nightmare.
