    Summit Lights

    Wanting your opinion here...

    I made a light bezel for the stock body, what do you think?

    I'm assuming the hole in the middle is a tapped hole for attaching to the body? Is this meant to fit where the headlight decals are? As in there will be a left and right side version? And you just put four holes in the body, one for the screw, and three for the LEDs? If so, that's actually a pretty cool idea. 3D print it and hand tap the mount hole.
    Why can't other people share my opinions?

    Where would this mount at. I don't have a Summit yet, I just ordered one. It looks like a good idea!

    Great questions...

    Yes, the bezels are meant to go were they decals are, and pretty much intended for a new clean body rather than a RTR body.

    The hole in the middle is for attaching the bezel, and lines up with where the exo cage comes through the middle of the headlight.

    I noticed that! Great idea! How do you plan on making them?

    Sounds good! I think it would be really awesome installed and all lit up! I'm assuming you are going to 3D print them?

    Yup, I need to wait for the weather to warm up a little more up here in the PNW, then I will get the body painted up.
