Well got bored last night and thought i need a reverse light but normal flood lights aren't all the bright n the LED ones are to pricey.

So having a couple of spare HID spotties laying around i thought why not HID a standard flood light from Super Crap auto witch i already had cost me a huge sum of 25 bucks.

Was dark n have poor light in the shed so didn't get any pic's of modding the light to suit the HID globe but wasn't hard just had to file hole out n make a spacer as globe was about 3mm to long.

Made a bracket to mount the ballast there

Got home from work early today so thought i would mount the ARB compressor.

Couldnt work out where to put it i everyone mounts them under the seat but i wanted it up off the ground out of harms way if i ever flood the car.

So mounted it to the cage was using a gasless mig at mates so the welds are poo so i gave up trying to weld it so i just did single tac's all the way along it

Hoping to have a front locker buy end of July.

Well bought my self a 10lt Air tank witch is now connected to my ARB compressor witch works a treat takes about 1min to fill the tank
up and pumps up one 37inch tyre from 15psi to 40psi very easy atm my pressure witch i have cuts off at 100psi will get the 130psi switch from ARB next week.

Also got my Regulator all set up off tank ready to run a air line to my dizzy so i can pressurize it up so no water problems when hitting water hard.
Will be running 8psi in my dizzy seems to be perfect amount for it on GQ's
