    Thumbs up Re: Added some LED lights to my Raptor SD

I knew I wanted to use LED's because I didn't want the lights to draw too much power from the mower's battery. I looked at a lot of options, but I chose to go with some low-profile strip LEDs that use double-sided 3M tape to mount. I also purchased a pre made wiring harness to ease the install. I think it turned out pretty good.
    NICE!
    Where did you purchase the lights and switch?
    I've been thinking of adding LED head lights to my mower.
    I would like to add some red LED lights to the rear too, since I mow about 400' along the road adjacent to my house. Cars zoom by at 55+. At dusk it is difficult for the driver to see me without any lights.

    Re: Added some LED lights to my Raptor SD

    Great idea. Decided to put the same kit on my Fastrak SD. I noticed the lights get very very hot in a short amount of time. Saw some pics with these on the gas tank. Although that was a great place to put them, decided not to as it might melt the plastic, and then kaboom.

    here are some pics.

    I did the same thing. Got a Lighted switch, found an LED 9" light bar for good price.
    Had all the rest of the stuff laying around. I think it turned out better than the $180.00
    halogen light kit they offered.....
    For some reason I can't insert any images....?
