CJ grill on wall with lights

Just thought I'd share this as it’s been talked about a few times. A local restaurant with a backwoods flair said our club could hang a Jeep grill on the wall to match the rest of the decor. So I grabbed the worst CJ grill I had (from the pile) and my friend Brian and I used a 110 to 12 volt power box and 4 LED lights to make this. We used a bad set of headlight buckets and just the front glass from two bad headlights. All four LEDs are the small push style found on the front fenders. The sign below is a metal plate that will be hung by two small chains. A pull chain on/off switch finishes off the sign.

I've got one I'm going to put speaker in,
Woofers in the head lights, mid/high range in the park lights, then cover them with those silly woven wire protector guards someone got me a few years back and I never used.
I figure the gap at the bottom will be a good place for stereo.

Guess I could add LED lights in the speaker gills if I wanted to... Maybe pulse with the music?

I did one a few years back with a clock in one head light, and a thermometer in the other,
Small speakers in the park light holes and a radio in the bottom.
Stole the idea from a Ford T-bird grill I saw in a restruant with a $1,700 price tag on it!
