    Default Simple front LED pod mount

    You will need a spare lower roll cage thingy part from the centre parts tree.



    1. Trim the centre roll cage thing down at the sides and chop the pin holder off.
    2. Mount the centre roll cage thing upside down in the bumper and mount through the holes that are in the bumper.
    3. Drill through the bottom and use some self tappers to grab the pod.

    I believe Hiks had these fitted when he was cartwheeling the bull at high speed, so must be quite tough too

    I'm loving the Michelin man stickers! Are there LEDs behind them too?

    Well the detail of the logo is spot on! Backlighting them with leds will only make it that much cooler when running at night.

    One other idea I've had, but never been able to apply, is backlighting a translucently painted 5b body with led strips place appropriately.

    Looks good. What have you used as a cross bar?
