Son sabotages my H1

Post by Snakeyes » Sat 08 Jan , 2011 7:38 am

I recently installed a Xmitter lightbar to give me better illuminations when going off road (not crazy rock climbing like you enthusiasts). It uses only 40 W and provides superb light. When driving around I started getting strange looks and comments from passing cars and assumed with some surprise that they were reacting to the, what I thought unobtrusive, Xmitter lightbar. About a week and a half later I noticed the plastic teeth (canines) attached to my front grill by my son. They are far more visible than in the photograph and far more embarrassing to drive around with. I figured I would take a shot before I ripped them out.

1. I like that light bar "Very Bright"
do you have a link for that light?

2. I kind of like the teeth. Why not keep them in? Have a bit of fun for awhile :mrgreen:

It's expensive, but requires a very low wattage and extraordinarily bright. You can see its power in comparison to my HID headlamps. On your advice, will keep the canines till my wife rips them out. I hope you're having a great new year.

Ya.. It is different. And may not be HID. Completely LED technology. Not bad.
