Light Bar finished *Pics*

So I finished my light bar and just thought i would show you guys how it came out. I took the idea from some other member on this site.
I took it off roading last night and it made a HUGE difference! Ill snap some pic next time i go out.

That looks really good. Nice job. Any reason for 6 lights instead of just 4?

How did you run the wiring? I think I may make one of these soon. Just gotta get something to cut the tube, what did you use to make the slats?
