life savers

Postby markattard » Thu Mar 15, 2018 9:58 pm

My '52 series II comes with trafficators.. but I'm not keen on driving it without signal lights modern traffic just won't notice trafficators so I put some life savers indicator lights under the bumper... completely slidable underneath the bumper once you arrive to your destination. Your views please

Clever way of preserving the original look.

How do they slide exactly? Can we see a picture of the mounting?

They look white in the picture. Presumably they are amber when they light up?

in this pic showing the (unfinished) bracket one could see that with a flynut instead of the shown nutthe light fitting swivels to the other side and hides underneath the bumper valance. I'll post pics of the hidden light very soon

the light emitted is amber and it is driven through a flasher relay (works in tandem with trafficators)

Don't forget to fit your overider mounting brackets though - and some flat washers for the bumper bolts :wink:
