Temporary Lighting Solution

Recommended Posts

Nick
In order to avoid having to drill some unnecessary holes in the landlords seat pan, I made this SMV/rear light-holder. I took some shelf brackets you can buy at any hardware store, and some scrap plywood which I cut to fit between the seat pan and the seat. I drilled 1 hole each in the brackets in order to accommodate a bolt big enough to fit through where the rear implement light would go. On the opposite end, I screwed the brackets to hold the plywood. I wired everything and must have a loose connection somewhere as I can't get the lights to light up. Will work on that later when I have some more daylight.

Yep, they are 1 wire lights. I picked up a shopping bag filled with many of them still new in their packages at a yard sale for a dollar. I totally forgot about the ground wire. Must be this cold weather that's getting to me. :D
