The look is coolio

Not sure how heavy the lights are, I had some cantilevered aux lights (dually d2's) mounted on a crash bar and they did well for a while but eventually bounce around was too much for them (heavy fkrs) and the mounts gave up (both within a few days of each other out on a week's ride.)

Might be a good backup if you share experience

I had them mounted where you've put your arrow, before the light bar. The bar is very stable, but the mounts...err....I've broken them before. Lights don't weigh all that much. Going to hit some nasty gravel today to check them out.

Hope the test goes well - watch out for big wet spots out there, hard rain done fell last night.

Here's another way - this is what I did to the Duallys. I had to buy a big bag of these from Grainger and would happily give you some except bar diameter was 25mm and I put them somewhere I wouldn't forget.

Use your mounting bar and cove washer sandwich:

Hmm......that would've worked out well but the round stock has been flattened at the end. Might still try that if there is movement.

Packing the tool box for Sand blast!!!

YeeHAH! That's looking fun.

fwiw the flat ends ought not impact use of coves if/as I was thinking you keep the lamps in luminescent antennae coolio config. Hopefully your current set up holds for a while.

Did you get out in the drear and test this afternoon? I had a big cheeseburger and did some lazy wrenching....

Glad you like the thought - funny thing is I bought a router bit with intention of machining similar from some scrap marine nylon I have then found them at online (I actually got them from McMAster-Carr for $7 + $4 shipping. Linky

I needed to get in some dirt today, or sand, or something besides pavement, before heading to SC for Sandblast. Adult life has been getting in the way of fun life. Falling down retaining walls, homeowners insurance threatening to drop me because I filled a claim, filing a complaint with the insurance commisioner, refinancing the house......Geeze. Leave me alone!!!!!

So got in some sand today and jumped a jeep cherokee!!! Found 2 guys sitting in a mud puddle with a wet starter and battery. I had cables, so I jumped them! They were very happy. Got home from a fun run....and figured out I broke my seat. So out came the welder and grinder. Fixed. New tires mounted and balanced....check.......fluids........check....... .spares and tools.......check.........race plates.........check. Now off to do laundry and work out.

Cool. I have 2 numbers for you in my phone, one is prefix 658, the other 797 which is the cell??? Is it just you and me in the room, or anyone else? Wondering if I can check in if it's under your name, hope to see you at dinner.
