I think the bar should be straight instead of contoured and definitely needs a hoop on top just to make it look finished and more lights. Something like these.

Damn nice looking Baja, '57. Your right though, they do look like ears - or tree limb bait. I've been thinking custom roof rack that doubles as protection. Maybe smaller lights too, if I can find some that will put out w/out suckin 'up too much current (watts?).

Sorry man- that light bar is rainbow city. Reminds me of those little yellow pest control beetles that drive around here, with ears and a tail.

I love your baja too and I also agree that there is just something about that light bar that just looks off...a couple more lights would deff take away from the mouse look of it. I also like the idea of just playing with the mounting of the lights. I dont know its your baja and so far you have done a great job with it so im sure it work out in the end...

Embarassed Ya know,,,,
I was thinking about a light bar up top too,,,, until I read some of the posts here.
Think I'll put my extras down on the front bumper and leave the room for a good roof rack. Well,,,,when I get to that point any way.

Have you decided what your gonna do yet?

After reading some more on here, I just thought of another way to verbalize my thoughts.

That light bar looks "JC Whitney" mounted to a Chip Foose or Boyd Coddington-caliber creation.

How's that? Laughing

I've got bigger fish to fry at the moment. The light bar idea has been shelved until I get some of the more pressing things done. I like roof racks, but I just took mine off and gave it to az350x. I really don't use it anymore, and it's just more dead weight that I don't need at the moment.

I'm having too much fun in the daytime to worry about night driving, which will amount to about 1% of my total off-road time.

Got lots to do before the next SoCal Bajas run.....

in my opinion, you should add maybe one or two more lights in the middle and throw a simple hoop over the top of them. if you atleast put one of those options on it, it might not look like mickey mouse ears.
