    empty body shell..no lights yet!!





    mounts for front rock lights!



    mounts for rear rock lights!



    soldering the the resistors to the wires to the led's



    pigtails started!



    one complete led all pigtailed up!! only 7 more to go!!



    Front rock lights installed



    Rear rock lights installed!!



    All the rock lights pig tailled together and run under the battery to the rear.



    lights installed in the body.

          Working to have an indoor Midnight run...

          No lights at all...just the rigs...

          We could have headlight drags also...

                  Whaa Whaa you brought the multimeter without knowing how to use it

                  It was fun and well worth it.

                    Cool deal.. Glad to see ya got them up and going.. What size clamps did you use for the rock lights? Didn't think of using those.. adjustable and all they nice and tight or want to move at all?

                      1/4" clamps, no they are tight!! can move them but it takes a lot to do!

                        Cool, thanks CJ...That will make rock lights a bit easier to do. I had made metal tabs, brazed into place, and then installed the LED's last time..Made for a bit more work

                        Also if anyone cares, I use this site to help calculate the resistor i need and wiring diagram on multiple lights

                        http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz

                        just put in the info, click wiring diagram and your good to go

                          man we could have used that when we were doing this job!! we basically guessed on the resistors! luckily for me, they worked!! lol
