For Me, that's mild. I do mostly covert installations on Gov./Fed. Vehicles. And everything I have has lights. Thanks! Glad you like it.

Thanks Ubert! I am very happy with it. It took a long time, but was also a fun little project. I realize most people are not going to take that much time or money, but maybe pick up something from what I did.

Way over the top!

Question, does the alternator put out enough to keep up with the electrical load?

Scrappy, thanks for the question. Like I told uberT, this was more of a fun project/demo for me. I love LED lighting and installations of them.

From the motor, I have a 7.5-Amp fuse before Rectifier, and a 5-Amp after. Everything you see runs around 4.2 Amps, per my meter. Its hard to believe. In case your wondering it pulls around 45 Watts.

Thanks! Any other questions let me know. It shows how much you can really run of the Ariens.

Nwcove, definately do not need it but I am not working in the dark either anymore :-). I actually did the Floodlight last year, but added the LEDs this summer. Thanks to all the members for the posts on the power issues, etc. I would have never figured out the rect. if not.
