    i personally would mount the strobes in there, and put my backup light's under the bumper. if you don't mind me asking how much money do you have in steel and labor for that thing?

    I got lucky because I had most of the steel lying around. I think I spent around $60 on the lights, welding suplies, paint, etc.

    thats sweet I was going to put lights in mine like that but what i ended up doing was putting a line of fire LED strip on it , it has all the functions i needed and its thin and out of the way

    If the rear work lights work OK on the streethawk, I would put some good quality amber (or whatever color is legal in your area) LED warning lights in the spare holes. They show OK in the day, and have super low amp draw. What's that extra hole in the middle for? Cargo light?
