A single bead might be enough, but I just gooped up the entire backside. I used Ultra-Black RTV, mostly just because it is what I had laying around.

I did a spiral w/ black silicone adhesive. Stay far enough from the edges so that when you press it on it does not ooze out, then just hold the plates in place w/ some tape until the silicone sets.

It would be best that the edges are sealed to prevent water ingress.

sent using my fingers and voodoo magic.

Do a search for Baja Designs Squadron to get all the details you could need.

The difference is massive, output is amazing for the small size, light weight and low draw. Lifetime warranty, too.

You will definitely need an LED dimmer controller for it if you want to use it on roads with other vehicles.

That's an awesome picture. How did you pull a wheelie at 44 MPH and manage to capture a picture of it yourself?

It is not very hard if you have a GoPro with a chest mount. Just take a still image from the video. It is not very hard even at 94 KPH.

ZaJules has much better resolution, though
