My 7 inch nilight is HUGE.  Going to use the 2 pods I have.

Here it is on a more serious note.  Not finished welding or painted, but here is the mock-up of the new bumper.

Also a good welding day.  LOL!

Thanks!  Using an old 230amp stick/arc welder.

Single Nilight or 2 smallers...  Hmm.

Painted and installed.  Just don't have the lights installed.

Forgot to mention.  Started work on my exhaust and wiring for the headlights and whatever nilight combo I use.  I also have most of the winch wiring complete.  I'll get some pix when I am a little further on the exhaust.

Oh yes, that bumper is much better in every way....

I'd use the 7" and stick the pods behind the original lenses.

LOL, I already have 6000K Led's behind the lenses.  Although the yellowing does dim them down a bit.   Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 8 2731072446

I am still trying to decide which to go with.  I like both configurations.

Beginnings of exhaust.  Kind of where I am going with it right now.  Building a 2 into 1 header.

PS: Choke cable is just holding it. Not how it would be ran.

What!? Where?... I don't see any pods behind those lenses. Are they bulbs?


Either way, I like the 7" light bar better than the pods on the brush guard, but that's only my opinion.

They are bulbs that fit in the existing sockets.  I quoted incorrectly.  They are 3000k bulbs. I meant to get the 6000K ones.

I did end up with the 7 inch bar.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 8 Img_2215


I also finished up the wiring for the winch and for the light bar.  Last of the wiring needed will be the hood lights.  I ran out of the connectors for it.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 8 Img_2214

Items still in work:

  • still need my panhard bar.
  • build my bumper
  • mount a winch
  • clean up engine, add oil and bolt down
  • Fender flares? (low priority)
  • Gas Pedal
  • EXHAUST  (In-work)

Well exhaust is ran. Not sure how I feel. Not the throaty sound it had. Has a brap sound of a 2 stroke dirt bike right now. Not sure how I feel about that.

I think I will back track a little and add a muffler.

The MM's exhaust sounds pretty good. Always had a deep tone without any mods. So when I ran the tail pipe out the back, it got a low deep tone at idle, and now with that new rear bumper in the way a little, the air coming out hits it hard when I punch it and makes a loud popping sound. It's just a pipe ran right off stock muffler and it sounds great to me. I don't think an oppy muffler would have the same tone though.

EDIT: Maybe you could run dual pipes... Twisted Evil

I've ran duals on an oppy.  Only 1 engine (one in Kal) has ever sounded good with them.  This engine likes 2 into one.  I just need a resonator of sorts in there to change the tone.

I like how the exhaust is turning out, but I think I would hit my knee and inside of my leg on the switch on the side of the dash all the time, I get speed knots on the inside of my legs from the dash after a hard day of riding anyways. but that might just be me, I kinda hang on and balance myself with the inside of my legs on the dash

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing this morning when I was reviewing my pictures ressponding to MM.  After work I may go out and move it.  No sense stabbing my knee over and over and over.  Not sure what I was thinking when I did that.

I agree. I honestly didn't have any major issues with running 2 on the left side of the dash on my red one except for my knee accidentally flipping the switches and turning my lights on when I hit a hard bump Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 8 1098998679. But my brother destroyed 2 of his that way and they were right about where that one is.

Exhaust is complete. Put my old stack that was on Thor on as a muffler. Not loud and ear piercing now.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 8 Img_2218

Sounded ok. While digging around I found the pieces I started cutting for steering spindle gussets. I'll get those on sometimes.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 8 Img_2219

Also moved that switch to the dash top.
