High stop lights

Here is an update from this weekend on the high-stop lights.  I’m nearly done with the bus lights and just waiting on a couple of 24v to 12v stepdown transformers to arrive.

 

Here is one of the fabricated mounting brackets, primed and painted.2016-03-27 15.24.24

I am sealing them in with silicone caulk.  It’s simple and it excels at this purpose.

After the install I wipe up the excess and it looks darn good.2016-03-27 16.06.31

The wiring is okay, but doesn’t look factory.  There is an interesting rubber seal that the light mounts to.  I had to cut it to get rid of it.2016-03-27 16.08.21

I always test the lights before sealing them in.2016-03-27 16.12.06

And here is another view showing the curb side completed.  Looks great and I shouldn’t have to mess with it for a while.2016-03-27 16.18.52
