Hello all, I have decided that this summer, I would like to make my own roof rack for my WJ, and within that rack, I would like to hide a 40" LED Light Bar (Rigid Industries of course).
I first thought about mounting it behind a plexiglass or polycarbonate "wind ramp", or whatever the proper term is, and then tinting the plastic so you can't see it until its on. Well, I looked, and there was no getting around that that would reduce light output.
So, my next option is a little more tricky.I would like to have it automated in some way that it lays down hidden in the rack, and with the press of a button in if lifted above the rack, or in some form "out" of the rack to be used.
Here is an example of one company who has already done such a thing.
Does anyone have some ideas on how to do this? Parts, critiques, or other ideas on how to do this are all welcome.
