Default Re: Looking for nice but cheap tail lights

I just cut holes in a small panel in the dash to mount all my switches.

One is for headlights/tail lights.
One for radio/12V cigarette plug/dome light (with a push button on it)
One is for my underglow LED lights

I fused my lights with a 15 amp inline blade style fuse and it works fine. You do not have to run a ground back to the battery. My lights are grounded to braces on the front of the frame for mounting the body. Attached are two pics of the dash.



A closer shot.



This pic is the wiring from the back. Its kind of a mess, but it made sense to me.

yeh them switches look easy you just drill the right size hole and slide it through, mine is different. It looks like this, the middle switch part being seperate.

I have an identical looking switch to yours (minus the bulky surround) controlling my headlamps. I drilled a hole in the dash and then filed it out to accept the switch body. On the rear of the switch body are two locking tabs, on a standard CC dash these need to carefully pried out from behind to grip the thicker plastic.

If you don't want to have problems with it down the road, Ground it to the battery post. grounding it to the frame you WILL have problems sooner or later.
and if it is an electric cart NEVER ground it to the frame

Shoot just looked at those pics again, do I have to take the whole front of the cart off to get behind the dash to do this. Sorry for the questions cart is at the campground and I am home trying to figure out what tools and stuff I need before I go there tomorrow.

I used two of theese in red on my G16 http://www.jcwhitney.com/auxiliary-5.../p2011775.jcwx mounted vertically on the rear bars for the roof. At the time my reasoning was I wanted them higher so they were more visible. My cart is used at the race track almost 100% of the time. They are nice and bright and definatly stand out.

ETA I have them as a constant running light when the head lights are on. Never tried to use them for brake lights or blinkers.
