    I am considering fitting 2 or 4 spotlights to my blue 240Z. I have the lamps and I will produce a nice relayed loom with waterproof multiplugs.

    What is out there if anything?

    Yes, I've been in touch with him today. He may be able to fabricate something for me but if someone has something in their garage I'd like to know too.

    I have one of these as pictured. lamp bar with tabs for the lights. Laser cut drop brackets. Two bumper corners.
    Lamp bar unbolts to leave the quarter bumpers.
    One side is already welded. The other needs trial fitting to the car it is going on before final welding.
    Then it can be painted or powder coated

    Rob, I have a pair of mounts/lights which were attached when I acquired the car. I removed them preferring the clean look. They were undermounted to the bumper so not a spot light as such, more a driving/fog light style I think.

    Hi blue Jon, thank you for the info.

    So those two lamps are mounted via clamps onto the bumper are they?

    I agree that the 'clean' uncluttered look is best however if you want lamps cluttering can't be avoided. Escorts look better with lamps Zs don't IMO. Also the front opening bonnet causes location issues.

    I'm trying to make my car fit for HERO events and to be able to sell it as such when the time comes. However I'm not going to make irreversible changes.

    Alan can you share the spec/history of this car? It looks amazing, nice to see one in a different configuration. It looks very very well specced
