    Rear Highway lights

    I needed better highway safety lighting that could withstand the battering from tree branches and bushes when mowing along the fence lines. I cut 4" square tubing down to the size I wanted for the body, and used 3/16 for the lights to mount in. They been on for two years now and everything is still working as designed so I'm happy, they make a huge difference when mowing along the highway, cars see you and will move to the center of the road when passing by. One guy came so close to me mowing I felt the wind off his vehicle, with so much green in the summer the tractor blends in with the highway grass.

    Success, I got it. The top lights still need to be synchronized. I put a double pole, double throw, momentary closed to sync them but I'm always in hurry.

    GTT doesn't host videos. You have to upload it directly to a site such as YouTube. Then copy the url of the video in the upper address bar. Click on the little video icon in the editor window header. Then paste the link you copied earlier into the popup window.
