well im thinkin about the lights for my build and i just thought of...how many lights do i need??

as of right now im going to have a bug eye kit, and wide eye fenders, which i dont think thats going to look to hot, but for free i cant complain.

i might delete the two middle lights, somehow, recommendations??


i was going to use these 5" lights from chirco

www.chircoestore.com/c...s_id=11203


put 4 on the front bumper bar and maybe 2 on the back bumper bar.

there 55 watts, how bright is that?? like how would that compare to normal car headlights??

and then for brake lights i would use these

www.chircoestore.com/c...ts_id=1966

for blinkers im just going to use the amber version of the same light.

WHERES SHOULD I PUT THE BRAKE AND BLINKER LIGHTS IN THE FRONT???

on the back ill just put them on the bumper bar right next to eachother.

are you planning on making your baja street legal? of so you can not use offroad lights as headlights. what i did is took 2 7" light housing from offroad lights. and replaced the offroad beams with driving beams i picked up at Auto zone. very easy to switch them out and they work great!
as for turn signals in the rear i have stock vw bug signals but i put LED strips on the front and sides for my front signals:

here are the headlights and the signals mounted to them:


signals on the door (extra visibility when switching lanes on the highway Wink )


i got the orange LED strips from www.oznium.com they are VERY bright and waterproof and come with double sided 3M tape, the website offers many different styles but the ones i run are the "Flexible LED strips"

Hope this helps!

He swapped the bulbs. I think I did the same thing with my smaller 5" ones. The sevens would be much brighter as you can get the upgraded replacable brighter bulbs.

I went a different route. 6" off road light (part number 0093100) then remove bulb and replace with sylvania H5006 dual filament (hi/low beam DOT approved). Standard and halogen available at most auto parts stores.

Which brand is that part # for? Sounds like a better setup than the regular 7" buggy lights. Offroad lights usually have a somewhat better adjusting system than the buggy lights. And a 6" would fit in the fender holes better.
