well when you remove the radiator cover and you look down there there is reall nothing there. The grill then the bumper bar(I think thats what its called) and thats it. there is really a lot of room behind the grill. Mount it to the bumper bar so it reflex of the radiator and youll be able to see it on both the upper and bottom grill area. Hope this helps Bigwayne3000.

Not an RS either... I will eventually put a 2LT emblem on the back though.

All you have to do is attach it to the top front of the radiator and run the power from the fuse box. I had Showstopper do this on mine when he did all my lighting mods.

Okay, so to achieve this exact look...



I'm gonna order these lights today, and went ahead and removed the radiator cover, and also made a spot to run the wires to the fuse box on the passenger side for power. I took some pics also.

Question is where exactly to mount on the bumper bar with top and face of it labeled. I'd assume mounted it on the face, and reflecting it off of the radiator would be best?




I made 2 holes to run the wires over that will come out right under where the fuse box is.

If you want to isolate the effect to the upper grill mount it to the area marked "top" if you want it to show on the upper and lower grill areas (like in the video) mount it to the "face".

Hope that helps

Awesome, I just wanted to get that pic so everyone knew what the area looked like. Placed my order for the V2 RGB Duals yesterday, it's gonna look sweet!

I didn't like how the light from the Scanbar in the bumper would been seen from the Hood latch when hood was open at shows. ( looking Down )

So I placed my Scan Bar inside a piece of Angle Bar ( painted Black ). This made a lip over the top of the scan bar so you can not see it from above!

It also holds the Scan bar in place so it cant move and i was able to place it anywhere i wanted!

Here is a picture of the type of bar i used. You can get this at any hardware store. I mounted the Scanbar to the Angle bar. And then mounted the Angle bar to the Car.

I will try to get some pictures at night. Just this iphone is not good for night video!

As long as you have Amber it is technically legal to have. Its just an additional marker light, similar to the way truckers add amber "chicken lights" to heir rigs.

Its just an additional marker to make you more visible to other traffic. Now, that is not to say that your are not going to attract a LOT of attention from the lights
