Thread: Great light bars for roof....

  1. #1

    Great light bars for roof....

    ok so heres my little half day project, saw these at a shop here in new zealand. and im glad i got them..they are great and look good too. almost a perfect fit. no drilling needed and come pre-wired. just need to connect + and - from battery or high beam... the wires run perfectly down the window under the door seals.
    they are 4 55w spotlights, can switch the outside two or inside two or all 4 at once. metal cases for the lamps on a plastic/abs base. lights can be adjusted up n down etc.. and have rubber surrounds to keep water out. all held on by 3M mounting tape which they come with also.
    i did do some mods, i epoxied the screws that hold the lamps at the bottom so they can then be adjusted while mounted, and i re-wrapped the wires to make them lay flat when under the door seals. other than that these units fit right out of the box.

    i can buy and ship to USA for around $150us if any of you guys over there want some. have a paypal account to make it easy. plus ill donate $5 from each sale to the site for all the good work.

    let me know if anyone is interested, more pics in gallery

    Man, I love the color of your VX.

    I'm toying with buying another VX with poor(er) paint and doing a full respray in lime-ish green, in the same vein that Proton is to yellow, this Lime would be to green. Maybe the Lotus lime green?

    Anyway, I do like the light bar and it looks like it would be compatible with my fairing. After I get my stereo amp'd and honor my verbal commitment to rowhard for a front 'faux plate,' I would seriously consider this mod. As I'll surely never do a sunroof, even though I would love to, this would fill the 'bald space' between the XM antenna and the fairing. 'No square inch goes un-modded! (Said the guy with a nearly-stock exterior VX, grinning...)

    Thanks for the post and cool pictures, castigan.

    Yes, the green along with the other JDM colors are cool, only because they are different. But those wind deflectors you have around your windows are way to cool. Any chance you might know of a source of those we Yanks might get out hands on????

    ive got the light bar sitting about 5mm in front of the ends of the roof rails... so i think you will find there is plenty of room with your fairing.

    if someone wanted the paint its easy enough for me to get. i had the labels removed from the sides and my panel beater matched the paint perfectly. i could get it in bulk for sure. and it would be cheap for americans as your money is pretty strong compared to ours.

    THANK YOU!

    There was another post about this exact lights before. I contacted the poster and he was unwilling to help me ship them the US. I will most likely buy these from you in the next week or mid week! I have been wanting these for too long.

    NEXT! I have been asking any owner that has them to help source your window deflectors. I would love to have those.

    Dakar was just the begining.
