little project - windshield light mount brackets

little bit of angle iron and some chopsaw & welder time


gonna use some gasket material to go between them and the paint.
still some cleaning up and powder coating to do and get some lights - more pics later
depending on how they look I may move the light mount part lower and outside more by sliding it down the bracket
Pretty much just playing for now

Do you have a local shop, or is your shop your garage cuz I don't know anyone who has a powder coater!!

They sell the oven for $300 or you can use the kitchen oven to bake it on

LOL I can imagine that conversation.

"Honey, I'm putting my brackets that I powder coated in the oven"

"Fine!!!! Not like I was planning on baking anything!!"

it's amazing how much stuff miraculously ends up powdercoated before she gets home from work

That's pretty cool and very ingenious! Nice work.

You should have heard the conversation when the ring gear was in the oven and the LSD was in the freezer.

I think my best one so far has been when I found out that the cosmoline grease that military surplus rifles come packed in melts and disolves in a dishwasher if you use the potscrubber setting
I bought a particularly nice SKS at a show not long ago.........

Here are some finished pics
the jeep is filthy, it misted rain and then was wicked dusty

close up

crappy cell pic

crappy night pic

cell pic of all the lights on

I used super cheapie lights, $16/pr but they're 100 watt with decent long range beams- bright as hell!
and at that price, they're disposable if they get busted.
Wired from stock fog wiring to kick a relay to power all the lights so as not to upset the computer

Ack! My eyes! That looks pretty bright!

Good thing those lights are inexpensive because it seems as though the bumper ones are in a dangerous location. I know around here in the rocks they wouldn't last.
