  • LED Brake light placement

    I'm looking for your ideas guys and gals. I bought my new LED for the brake light and I am looking for some ideas where to put it. I am taking off the rack on the back so it is flat, nice and clean.

    The first idea. The manufacturer said it would be ok on the vinyl seat. So that is my plan for now. TPlace it on the back of te seat where the seat makes a point, the two side tape is real strong and I bought I prep kit for that section. There is some hard plastic behind that section so I am not worried about it sinking in. The light itself is promoted as a "Flexible aray", so it bends to mount flush.

    The second idea.Placing it on the rear grab bar. I would have to replace the bar there is a small dink in it.

    The third is to place it between the rivet holes above the snow flap. I have seen few sleds like that.

    The fourth idea. Under the seat where the seat makes a point.

    I have pics of all these, but I really HATE resizing pics. Really. If you want pics I would be more then happy to send them via email to you for your opinion.

    (psst, boss, we need a way to have pics resized by themslf when they are uploaded on here! I know I am lazy, but it is a pain in the arse!!!)


    EDIT: This is kinda cheating, but:

    It's easier than you think to resize em Jack. Here ya go....

    Goto Microsoft PowerToys for windows XP:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx
    download and install the image resizer powertoy (Imageresizer.exe)

    This adds a "Resize Pictures" selection to the right-click menu. Just right-click on any picture file and select Resize Pictures. A dialog box pops up and you can choose how much to shrink it! Way cool......and EASY!

      Bad link. I got things to re-size. I just try and enter the size, 640x480 and it's to big. So I change it a little and it's to small. I can't win. I am open o new things, so if it is easier i'll try it. Try the link again though.

            I think on the seat, better visability cause its higher and a little more out of the snow dust. The curve to it on the seat just really catches my eye too. Hope to see some pics when your done.

              The seat is the best looking, but I would be worried about it staying there long term.
              #3 pic is probably the most sensible placement for it, but it does look great on the seat...

                    The way it is made there is no place for rivets. It has heavy duty 3M tape on it. When I asked them on the phone about the strength they said it would stick to anything. They said once it's on, it's on for good. So make sure I like where I pick.

                            No problem, the total cost was $67.64. The parts came in about a week or so. If I know we are going to be meeting sometime I'll have you order the stuff ahead of time. The when when we see each other some time I can install it. It's actually kinda simple, if you want I can walk ya through it? (Don't want you to think I was playing the high and mighty male role!)
