Title: Headlight stuffs
Post by: opus on January 12, 2014, 03:18:46 PM
I am looking for a 4 round headlight setup. 2 round headlights on each side, buckets, etc. Anyone have this in a pile somewhere??

I actually am thinking of hitting up a JY for some round lights

either 7" off a jeep with the buckets and trim rings (4 or them) LED conversions available also
or
hitting up an old GM truck for the headlights and buckets...other issues first tho'

I figure finding an old bus in the JY wont happen  :P

I broke down and decide to do it right.  I got hold of Daniel Stern and am working with him.

Daniel is a Cibie guy.  Too pricey for being in line of fire with wildlife.  If I wasnt worried about taking them out, I'd do it.  JW Speaker the same thing.

Daniel is the #1 lighting guy in the US, if you need anything, consulting, etc.

What exactly do you mean by your statement about wildlife?  Are you saying the ECE headlights don't provide enough light to illuminate wildlife?

I think he doesn't want Bambi or Rudolph taking the lights out when they jump in front of the bus committing suicide  :D

In this country we are always having to deal with hitting wildlife.  It just so happens headlights are the perfect height for deer, elk and moose.
