Illumination of the Heritage marque

To take my NAS D90 into the 21st century I installed a small led lamp to illuminate the vintage land rover badge installed on my grill...even with the badge I am sure I will still get complements on my Jeep.

Those are pretty cool ! - but I would likely install them to point outward (parallel to the ground) so they would laser project the Land Rover logo onto the cars passing me on the highway - I would keep them directed low enough (car door level). so no one loses an eye!

Still have the yellow 90, and the NAS 110 which you never saw because I bought it after we moved out to NY. I'm cruising around Europe (slowly) in the 130. We took it skiing in Norway last winter. I mean, we took it to go skiing, the 130 itself did not ski.

What is your ARB indicator hole setup? Are those marker lights or fogs? I really like it.

Hi Jim - Those lights are re purposed NiteRider mountain bike lights. But they have been mildly customized. instead of using halogen lamps I installed LED lamps with the same form/fit as the halogen lamps. Each lamp has the output equivalent to 20 watts. (but only draw 3 amps of power.) I use the bumper mounted lights as daytime running lights, ( they are very bright) I also have 6 Dual beam NiteRider lamps installed on my roof rack and as interior lights for the load space. The rack mounted lamps are very good work lamps. But I also use them for night driving on narrow roads. (it lets me see just how close I am getting to rocks, tress, edges of cliffs, etc). I have one mounted at the rear of the truck which is tied into my backup lights - so I have good lighting when backing up. I sourced the NiteRider lamps on eBay over a year ago - I bought 8 dual beam lights and 5 single beam lights and was able get most of them for $10 to $15 each - I got a couple for $2.50 each. The units are weather proof and seem to be holding quite well. I used the niterider mounting components to attach the lamps to simple brackets I fabricated. If you want to do the same I'd be glad to fabricate the brackets for you.

I attached a couple pics for you - the lamps in the bumper are single beam units - the ones on the roof rack are dual beam units. I also attached a pic of the lights turned on... the sun just went down.

(Sorry - I wrote "draw the 3 amps of power" in the description - It is was suppose to say 2.5 to 3 watts of power) - they draw of very little power for the high output of light.

here is the url to the lamps I used:

I just went out to eBay to check the prices that sellers ar easking for the vintage niterider gear... it looks like prices have skyrocketed - making it cost prohibitive to buy the used bike gear for LED lamp replacement. There are plenty of other LED lamps out there configured for 4 wheelin'
