It’s not finished yet, I want to get the covers development finish first and then I will go back on improving the buckets.

Very little progress today
Even if Iím not done on the cover, Iíve been thinking about the bucket and did few attempts and the result doesnít even worth a picture.
But, I have more idea and will try to work on it this week as well as (hopefully) finishing the cover.
Also waiting on pictures and drawing from few members on different forums.
Thanks

Will it be possible to aim the headlights so they will work correctly? - Or do they just fasten to the back of the bucket ?

Will the bend in the cover show up in the light pattern to throw it off or to look different - still interested though...

Iíve been busy with work all week and didnít have much time to allocate to the headlight project.
Hereís where Iím at:

Light
I received the 4x6 headlights that I ordered and Iím not very happy with the quality.
I will post pics late but would recommend to those who want or need good quality headlight to buy the Hella one.

Buckets

Iím still thinking about the buckets and might have found the answer, maybeÖwill see.

Covers

Iím about at 95% with the right side cover and 60% with the left.
I will try to finalize over the week-end and next week.

Thanks

I finally did some work on the headlight project today.
First, the lights are not as bad as I thought, but I didnít try them yet.






Second, I believe that the right cover is good to go.
No pics to show simply because Iím out of plexiglass, I will try to go buy some this week.
The left one should be fast to do since I know what I have to do.

No change on the bucket, I still thing that I found how to do it, just need more time to build it.

Thanks

Interested in the buckets depending on how they mount. Not hard to make a set better than the D9 crap...

No more progress on the bucket but the right side cover is looking good and the left side is almost ready too.
Please let me know your impression.
On the first pics, the flash really shows the bend.





Thanks
