Hated the heat generated from the T5's,, decided to upgrade to Radions

beginning of ripping apart the hood

what to keep ,, what to chuck,, ended the only thing that was left,, was the timer and the cooling fans

custom mount made of lightweight aluminium/plastic sandwich for the radions

Nice. What's its volume? And how much did it cost you, if I may ask?

Did you put the splash guard back on after you installed the radions?

kengeroo

yes,,, putting the splash guard on will of course protect the lights... and allow the hoods cooling fans do their job...
