Bump for a cool fix.

I was looking up how to do this for my parts truck, which is 12 volts...

I ended up with a spare blackout light, that runs on 24 volts, in the "parts box" that came with the truck.

Pretty cool fix Man.

Now I need to find the hood bracket...
these things are rare rare...

Conundrum... gonna probably have to make one..



Yep cool fix .

Thanks.

Thanks.
I see reproduction hood brackets on eBay all of the time.

I have no affiliation with the seller but here is one:

Thank You Don !

Spensive, no ?

Although
I really like the looks of the blackout light on the hood.

everyone does think its a siren...

but the truck looks a heck of a lot better with one on there.

I'm still looking for it but somewhere on this site I found a .pdf of a cad drawing of that bracket with dimensions if you want to build your own.

This is the drawing I made:


The plate is 4 inches wide from end to end and is 1/16th inch thick.

I made a side view drawing of the plate by tracing the spare plate I have:


Dimensions:
A= 3/4 inch
B= 5/8ths inch
C= 4 inches
D= 1 13/16ths inch
E= 7/8ths inch

Top view, simple, just trying to show the bolt spacing and hole sizes...


The holes on the edges, on the flanges in the first drawing, are 9/32nds inch diameter.

The hole centers on the short edge of the first image, section A, are 3/8ths inch in from the long side edge. Each of the 2 holes in that end are 1/2 inch on center in from the short side edge, there are 3 inches center to center of the 2 holes.

The hole centers on the long edge of the first image, section E, are 7/16ths inch from the long side edge. As with the other end, each of the 2 holes in that end are 1/2 inch on center in from the short side edge, there are 3 inches center to center of the 2 holes.

The large flat top area has 3 holes as seen in the 2nd image, section C. The holes are all 1/2 inch on center from the side edges of the plate. The 2 holes on the upper part of the 2nd drawing...the one on the left, toward the short flange side, is 9/16ths inch on center from the edge...the one on the right is 11/16ths inch on center from the opposite edge. The 2 are 2 3/4 inches on center from each other. The single hole on the other side is 2 inches on center from each edge...dead center of that 4 inch section.

Thanks for all the help Guys.

I found another old thread with the actual measurements ( thanks Brute ! ) for drilling the mounting holes on an FSJ hood... Which Is what I'm working with.

I should be good to go now... and I appreciate it.

I just dont really want to drop 30 bucks on a mount... but i dont have the ability to bend metal easily.
( Vise and a hammer... lol ... I do have manual "scissor" type shears... But I want it to look good as well.)
