Mate those halo’s are the mutt’s nuts - the whole lighting set up looks bloody great. Love it.

That number plate light set up is pretty rowdy. Digging this

So, a few updates. Aside from some things like, installing the starter gears and clips, much of the recent work has been fab on things like brackets,
 and headlight mounting. Not too much, but getting closer.

Originally I purchased a "unversal" seat from eBay, but after staring it for several weeks, I decided to build a custom seat that matched the lines of the subframe much better. So I "unupholstered" the seat and foam and refitted and shaved for it to match. Much better now!





Headlight mounting & Fab work.





With that done, I moved to the battery/electronics tray/encasement.

I'm still deciding on whether to weld on some mounts for a bolt on/off option, but also kinda dig the idea of using black zip ties for it. Still unsure, thoughts? Battery fits perfect with R/R, fuse box and solenoid tucked in.

So, looks like I'm going with the option to weld a few tabs onto the subframe for the electronics area perforated metal sides. Thanks for the input, LOL.
