Number plate headlight ideas?
« on: Jan 30, 2019, 08:53:36 »
 This isn't really a "build" thread, but I figured if it has been done it would be documented in this sub-forum somewhere.

 Thinking about doing some type of number plate headlight on an upcoming project. Old school, square-ish type plate.
 I have an old headlight bucket I could use behind it to hide some wires if needed. I also have a set of Cree lights/fog lamps that are dual output. These could be used behind the plate, under it, etc.
 Or, I could start completely fresh with a different (slimmer) LED or other type of spot light?

 Basically, show me your number plate headlight, what light(s) you used, how you mounted it all, etc.

I haven't made it that far yet, but planning to do something similar to this layout. Maybe use a 1/4" carbon fiber plate if I'm feeling real frisky

This one started out as a stock 8 x 11" race background that I cut and then bent with a little heat and a couple of blocks of wood.  The lights are a pair of cheap fog lamps on a custom mount.  Not ideal for fast road work at night but almost adequate for the purpose.

I used an LED projector from ebay, machined off the "halo" and used an aluminum numberplate. Made my own mount, the light is attached to the lower triple.

 Thanks guys! Keep 'em coming!

 I'd love to see how you mounted them, too.

CB750s have a few good options on the top clamp if you can get creative with some L brackets
