Don't forget your sunglasses when you go out! Where did you find those lights at? What kind of generator do you have powering them?

Here is a pic of my rig. Only thing different is the railings are now lower, they now hit just bellow the knee instead of above it. Ohh and it's now pulled by a Blue Dodge instead of a Chebby.
