  • Mounting the headlight without signal bar.

    Hello all, I am curious as to how any of you mounted the headlight bucket after removing the light bar. I have a Silverado and my headlight mounts to the bar, I am wanting to remove the bar and put on some smaller LED blinkers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    What you can do is cut the middle section of the turn signal bar that has the bracket and just use that. It stays hidden under the headlight very well. Or you could simply fabricate something but it would be easiest just to cut down the existing turn signal bracket that helps mount the lower part of the headlight bucket. Spray paint it black and slam it in there. Barons made a wonderful small discreet turn signal bar that was much shorter than factory and looked much cleaner. I had it on my white bike and really wish I had access to those again. Very hard to find I only found the one that I had.

          They make one still that looks similar, according to their site. But I love the look of that one.

        I just mounted a rubber bumper to the bucket using the same hole and used the other two mounting points as usual. The light bounces a bit on rough roads..

          Might be able to find the stock bar cheap at a bike wrecking yard. Find one damaged and as mentioned above, cut out the mounting point and ditch the rest. Then sell your complete bar to someone looking for one.

              Flashback, I don't think the photo made it. Try to upload it (if you are on a computer) using the link in the box that looks like a screnery photo.

                That doesn't surprise me sir, it's been ages since I posted a picture here. I tried an edit and I can see the pic now but quite possible no one else can.

                Maybe one of those cracked passing lamp mounts. Saw off the ends

                    I appreciate all the help guys, I've got enough metal laying around to bend up a bracket and utilize a rubber bushing like flashback mentioned.
