Nice gearbox, i always wondered why our cars didn't have a light. Be nice to have them stock.

oh i love it. i can see the whole engine bay without needing a crappy flashlight that you have to hold. i'll post pics when i get the raybrig bulb in. its gonna be crazy bright. this is just a regular bulb for now. I used a piece of a sidemarker and painted it black for the socket. its terrible and the bulb is hard to install but it stays on. wiring sucked, but I found that really nice switch that fit perfectly in the hole.

oh and i know someone is gonna say it. so let me say it first. it sits near the header with hood closed but nothing has melted. Bulb still works fine. Also closing the hood doesn't break the bulb. it sits in the spot between the header and radiator.

Oooooo I'd be in for a kit! Nice job gearbox. It seems most of my mods that don't involve liquid wrench are taken right off your written-up diy's and reviews.

Looks good, I would've made it closer to the back of the hood, like on most cars/trucks with underhood lights, or atleast all the ones i've seen.
