Make sure to check that its legal to mount it where you want before fabbing up brackets. In Vic they have to be behind the bumper or bull bar and cannot be mounted so high they are in the drivers sight line or on the roof.
That's the roadworthy considerations, put it where you wish, just bear in mind the potential hassle.

G'Day Fella's,

Here are some images of the LED light bar I purchased and the lump of 50mm Aluminium bar, I'll machine the mounting brackets from.

You can see the rough mark out lines on the Aluminium, to show what I intend to do.

are you just mounting them on the bulbar? if so i'd just go down to Autobarn and grab some Korr brackets in what ever size you need, cheap and very easy to use

G'Day Fella's,

Thanks for that great tip Jon79, and they do look good.
But I just need to make my own stuff.

Stay posted.
