    <div>"I see the light!"</div><div>It's a job I've put off for quite some time as I messed it up first time around, but I've now got a new light bar installed and headlights being mounted.</div><div><br></div><div>The bar is solid 20mm stainless mounted into tapered, offset, holders on the chassis uprights. I'm rubbish at geometry so considerable headscratching and sketching was required to ensure the bar ends located in the stainless brackets at approximately 80 degrees to the right angle. My 12-tonne manual press gave my muscles a work out, and a spirit level was extensively used to avoid one end pointing off the horizontal compared to the other (which happened last time).</div><div><br></div><div>The headlight brackets are 7/8" motorbike peg mounts in stainless and took weeks of tracking down.</div><div><br></div><div>The original 7" marlin chromed headlight cups have been polished up, and wires installed to LED halo units with integrated indicators. The base swivel/gimbal thing needed a notch cut to allow the bracket to locate, and it all works well.</div><div><br></div><div>Bar holders, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233875049276?mkcid=16&amp;mkevt=1&amp;mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&amp;ssspo=ycNkWe8NR8G&amp;sssrc=2349624&amp;ssui d=upKI28aeSHK&amp;var=&amp;widget_ver=artemis&amp; media=COPY</div><div><br></div><div>Light clamps,</div><div>https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/253102395318?mkcid=16&amp;mkevt=1&amp;mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&amp;ssspo=4P7Q6o_7Rs2&amp;sssrc=2349624&amp;ssui d=upKI28aeSHK&amp;var=&amp;widget_ver=artemis&amp; media=COPY<br><br><img src="https://www.marlinownersclub.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=12871&amp;stc=1" attachmentid="12871" alt="" id="vbattach_12871" class="previewthumb">&nbsp;<img src="https://www.marlinownersclub.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=12872&amp;stc=1" attachmentid="12872" alt="" id="vbattach_12872" class="previewthumb"><img src="https://www.marlinownersclub.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=12873&amp;stc=1" attachmentid="12873" alt="" id="vbattach_12873" class="previewthumb"><img src="https://www.marlinownersclub.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=12874&amp;stc=1" attachmentid="12874" alt="" id="vbattach_12874" class="previewthumb"></div>
