Let there be Light(s)!!!

With the winter rally looming right around the corner I have been focusing a couple hours here and there more on the car. With the Light Pod that I picked up from the EFI Logics crew, thank you for your generosity, I went to work. After a couple hours of fabbing up custom mounts the pod came together and looks half way decent. I was sick of the headaches and couldn’t stomach the additional cost of buying mounts specific for the lights and pod. So I went ahead and put my Lego/Erector Set building skills acquired in my younger days to work. Getting to use a plasma cutter and such is great motivation as well. After a few weekend days and some pretty slick ideas I managed to get everything mounted and wired.

After some testing, the usual donuts/ebrake hairpins/100+MPH test, the thing is still attached. Thats a plus….

Suspension is in the works and with all the stars aligning correctly they might be here for Turkey Weekend 🙂

one mans trash is another mans treasure

The winter work has started on the car. With hopes of hitting a snow event this year I am hard pressed on finishing the car up.

The newest project is a light pod for the very exciting night stages that come with staged events. I was lucky enough to come across this Carbon Fiber piece that was collecting dust to bring it back to life. Although the pod was originally designed for the 04/05 Subaru hood but with a little custom work and imagination I’ll getting sitting pretty on the 06 body style.

The pod will be filled with a combination of two Hella FF700 driving lights along with two KC Hilites 50 series driving lights. Should be good for 400+watts of light power
