There's probably easier ways to clear a driveway.......  But NONE of them would be this much fun

Was fun indeed! The backhead hitting the ice, not so much...


Preview of the rear bumper


Also fitted a marker light in the end

The other side turned out much better


Did the backside a bit different


Also did mount the marker light with the small side out for easier soldering.


Test mounted


Was to fit tail light outermost hole, brakelight second and reverse on the inside.
Will mount tail/brakelight in both outer ones and revers on inners.
Bin turn signals as I hate them going every time you turning the wheel...

A bit chilly in my mancave today...


Much much happier with second attempt on the left bumper.


Also has lengthen the led kit wires today.
Next is to rearrange the brake/taillights and solder them.

The side marker lights on the bumper had stopped working for some reason. Seems the output from the led kit is dead.
New wire was made directly from the receiver so now they work again 

And yes I had to test it again outside.
More snow has landed, so too much actually to plow anything but, tiretracks and downhill.





Very hard to capture the side marker on photo




This might be my favorite picture of the day


Better real view of rear lights when brake lights is off







Also make a short video...



Now the rear lights is working it's time for black out the backside of the bumper and use Plasti Dip on the connections to minimize the light bleed.
Not sure if I'm going to polish the bumper or paint it black to match the frame..

Been ME ill for a while now, but today I wanted to do some lights work again.

Time to make these roof marker lights I started a while ago, work.
First I installed 3mm yellow led, soldered the wires, pained the mounting face for the glass chrome and glued on the glass.


Made sure it work


Made 3 so far today. Includinng paint them with a chrome pen


Also very happy how the fender marker lights turned out





I hope i will look good when mounted a lit up.
