Re:


Has anyone enountered the mounting brackets for driving lights that seem to bolt behind the number plate?
I believe Lightforce have this option...

Like Disco explorer has said "They will probably only get turned on when I'm out and about on a camping/4WD weekend away (not more than monthly)".

Re:


The vibration using this mounting method will be far too great and you will indeed notice that when using the spotties.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


I have a small pair of driving lights on one of these bars wired up with the Nissan Driving Light loom.

Jalaski is right - the lights will vibrate if you just attach the light bar to the number plate mountings; reason being its just the front plastic bumper that is designed to flex (Pedestrian safety).

All those who have got a light bar to work have added a bracket behind the bumper and attached to the cross member ~150mm behind.

I had a U bracket fabricated out of 20g galvanised plate about 220mm wide and used 4 Tek Screws at the front to attach the bar (through the bumper) and a few beads of liquid nails at the back to glue it to the cross member (which is difficult to drill, thread or bolt to as it is high strength steel.

Lights solid as a rock so far.

Re:


Just want to know if a RECTANGULAR set of driving lights throw the same beam pattern as a ROUND set.

I think im going for the Hella 1000s and i think the rectangular would asethitically look better .

Re:


Pretty much the same, round gives slightly better distance but it's a personal choice really.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


Hi guys,

Found this thread while doing a search.

I've recently fitted the genuine Nissan nudge bar to my series 1 T31 and have also recently bought the genuine Nissan wiring kit for some spot lights.

Does anyone know whether a set of 200mm lights (Narva Targa 200 lights are ones that I am looking at) will fit on this bar? The other ones I'm looking at are the Narva 175 Ultimates but because I have the wiring kit already I only need the lights now. The Targa's can be bought for $100 so not sure if that is a good price or not but as I'm not a regular night time driver not interested in spending big bucks.

Also from what I have read in the past, the wiring of the lights uses the high beam wiring so that the switch only lights them up when the high beams come on? Is this how everyone does it or is it simple to wire them up independently of the high beams?

Thanks

Marty

I have the Narva 175 Blue and they are very decent lights for the size. Very happy with them.

It is a legal requirement that your driving lights switch off when you high beams switch off. I did this by splicing into the high beam wiring. I think you will find that's how most people do it.

Ok thanks Toddy, didn't know about that legal requirement so good to know.

From what i know the 175 Ultimas come pre-bundled with the wiring kit and sell anywhere from $150-$200 but because I've already got the Nissan wiring kit I just need the lights on their own. Just not sure whether the 200mm jobbies will fit.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


The 175 do come with a wiring kit but it is junk. I threw everything but the solenoid in the bin and replaced it with good quality wiring, fuse and switch.

This is what the 175's look like on an ECB Bar. 200's would be a very tight fit. Not sure if the Nissan Bar has more room.
