with too many lights...

Default The GFB (Ghetto Fab Bar) for Lights

4 hours and about $12 later yields this:

**EDIT: See later post for pics...**

Major mounting points are the two bolts that hold the radiator down. The points behind the license plate are purely to keep the bar from vibrating. The bits that sit on top of the bumper also help curb further vibrations.

Yeah so it's ghetto. But it's Ghetto Fab (for FABrications first, then FABulous).

All i have to do now is paint the thing black and then mount up the lights (pair of Hella 530 Amber Foglamps or Driving Lamps, depending on the situation). Now only if my PIAA Lamp Locks would get here...

It's stable and strong enough and the Hella 530's aren't that heavy so the weight is pretty much a non-issue.

[i love home depot...] [and Rapid_Roo loves lowes]

[$9 for three 1"x32"x1/8" zinc plated steel bars]
[$1 for four 10mm hex nuts]
[~$2 for four 10mm hex bolts]

Major Tools:

Large Countertop Vise
Drill Press

Minor Tools:

Cheaterbar (to bend the metal when it was already cut short)
Phillips and Flathead Screwdriver (to help disassemble the front grill and remove the license plate)
Metrinch Rachet/Wrench Set (greatest tool set evAr)
