    Yeah, I'll hold any comments until you paint the PVC, and trim the mounting studs for the lights. lol

    But props for DIY!

    PVC is an underutilized materiel if if you ask me. You can make a lot of good stuff out of it.

    Nice looking DIY.

    For most things it's a little too bulky/flimsy/ugly.
    For this it turned out to be perfect. Assuming it stays together XD

    Flip the bottom light cages around so the text is right side up. that's gonna drive me crazy otherwise. Props for the build tho.

    It's not that easy, the cages and the bottom piece on the base are one piece, so they don't just "flip around"
    Best bet is to cut the logo, flip it, and re set it. Lot of hassle.

    If you can't just flip them, cut them off and leave them off?

    Or just put them all on the top.

    EDIT: Or give me the other two to put on my ms6 :D

    are the cages integral to the mounting of said lights? If not, i'd say cut the cage off at where the mount plate and the cage meet, flip it, and epoxy it back.

    You can't solve all your life's problems with epoxy.

    ... But yes, I think that's what he's going to do.

    Right, because duct tape is the fix all for life.

    There's a little piece that recesses into the mount, that's what the big rectangle near the base is, so we cut the rectang off the bottom, the make a little slit on the top, problem solved. In fact, I'm gonna go doitnow.exe

    So we sheared 2 drill bits completely in half trying to drill through the crashbar, project is indefinitely delayed until we can find a new way to drill through the crashbar.
