Project "Night Light" LED Light Bar mount build

Hey guys,
I am building a light rack for my B3000 to eventually hold a 42in led light bar. This is the first time I have ever tried a project on this scale and it is/was a lot of fun!

I think this will get some of those creative juices flowing and hopefully inspire some of you to start a build of your own! Let me know what you think!

PART 1:

Great work as always, I always enjoy watching your videos. My biggest dislike about roof mounted LED bars is the glare off of the hood. This is great that you are able to mount it on the roof and still eliminate the glare.

Possibly some output videos with a shot of the lack of glare on the hood?

He is making a video to show how to wire them and he said he is going to put the output shots in that. The light isn't wired up yet.

Thanks a lot! Yea, that was the goal because I hate seeing people set up their light bars incorrectly. No use in getting night blind by your own light!
