Spent the entire weekend (18hrs) working on my engine and i came up w/ a great way to provide light after we lost power at midnight and i had RTV down requiring my manifold be put together within 30mins. Would work great for oil changes etc when the hanging shop light just doesnt cut it, as well as other places.

1 baseball cap + 1(or2) small LED Light(s) w/ a belt clip = hands free light.


Ill post a pic, but its pretty easy to imagine. I had enough lights for me to have 2 on my brim and 1 on my girlfriends hat.

Just tighten the hat a little to account for the extra weight (i use energizer lithiums so battery weight is minimal)

I wish i would have thought of it years before because its extremely handy and free.

Shop quoted $1000 labor $250 parts.
my final cost was 18hrs of my time, $100 parts & $50 to have my timing adjusted.

saved $1100 too bad the gun show got canceled

yea i tried it w/ em on top, but it seemed like if you had em on the bottom and set the flashlights just outside your eyes the light was just perfect
