Progress so far on the "rally lights" project.

Almost ready to start mounting the lights. Crash bar painted (I might have to paint a little farther down the sides), radiator plastic surround is cut and trimmed, and the bumper is cut although I have to clean up the edges yet.

How long does it take to get the bumper off? I need to do that myself sometime.

Takes me about a half hour if I remember what I'm doing and don't take more apart than needed.

Bracket made and lights mounted. Now for the fun part. Wiring.

What little time I've had to work on the rally lights this week has mostly been spent on boring wiring stuff, but got it all wrapped up tonight and interior put back together. Next steps, bumper work and some tweaking on the lights themselves.

I just couldn't stay away from the green paint.

This probably isn't much use to anyone else but me, but I like having a digital copies around in case I lose my paper one. Plus you never know.

Drew up a wiring diagram of the lights. There are two circuits, one for the orange lights on the left and one for the white lights on the right. I tapped into the parking lights and high beams at the BCM and included a picture of the plugs in case any one want to find the wires.

The big reveal. The rally lights are all finished.

At least for now. I'm not satisfied with the mesh I used so will be upgrading that in the future, but that's my only complaint so far. Loving how it turned out.
