Rock lights are armoured lights that you put under your vehicle so that when you are in low light conditions you don't need headlights which make spotting impossible. So based on some posts from the internet, I've designed and built some rock light bodies for super bright LED's. They act both as armour for the light, and a large heatsink. The electrical will come when and if Kevin ever gets around to it. Or I get bored.
At the bottom of this page are the CAD drawings saved in 2004 format. Any CNC shop should be able to build them for you from the files :)
The design is based off of someone elses design I found online a couple years ago, but alas I've lost the link (it was a forum). This design builds 2 at a time as it saves on machine time. You can get the shop to cut it in half, or you can do it yourself with a hack saw. There are 2 sizes of holes, a 4.2mm hole which is meant to be tapped for a 5mm bolt, and 5mm holes which are not meant to be threaded, as the bolts are to go straight through to secure the light to your frame.
- The body is 4" x 1.5" x 1/2" aluminum (2 per block)
- The cover is 4" x 1.25" x 1/8" thick plexi
- There are two 5mm x 1/2" bolts holding the plexi on
- There are two 5mm x 1" bolts for mounting
All the measurements are in inches unless specified otherwise (hole diameters).
