Nope. Wood trim. Cut to length, several coats of black spray paint, and several clear coats for water protection.

Now I remember. I saw the metal channel thing in another led thread. I got the LEDs in the mail today. I was playing around with different areas to put the lights. I like the halo subs. And I'm trying to figure out what angle to put the ones in the vents at. And something really cool I figured out was if you hook the lights up to an amp, it blinks them to them music!!!!!

Looks good man! I thought about doing that to my sub box but it is down firing and you would never see it anyways.

Well, this is what I did today:

It used to look very similar to this, except mine has racks:


EDIT: and tell me that 2nd picture I found isn't eerily similar to our setup. We have the same ATVs, both 1992 Timberwolfs with the Grey/Green theme. AND we both have the newer Bear Tracker with the Green/Black theme. You can see our Bear Tracker in my pic with the jumper cables and their Bear Tracker in front of the Timberwolf in their pic. I thought it was our pic at first, but nope.

Thanks, tomorrow I will start to install everything.

On a side note, that is a very good fourwheeler. Mine has strobes on it.

Haha strobes. Yea I love this ATV. I've had it for years and it was a rust bucket when we got it. It never ran great and it has been sitting in the barn with a dead battery, flat tires, and a bad carb for years now. Finally decided to drag it out and try to fix it. Also getting a full paint job, body, frame, wheels, everything. Hoping to have it ready by April 20 for Uwharrie.

Ha. Maybe a little. Before I installed those I tried them on the jeep! This is only 1 of the like 5 combinations i tried. Oh, and a pic of the strobe switches. The way I set it up I can choose between just strobes, just red and blue, or both in the headlights.

Sure. Post em up. Worst I can do is delete them later if I feel the tread is too cluttered. But for now, I want to see 'em.
