switch panel 2.0

During some night rally's we realised we were in the need for more light, we had enough light in front of us, but at the roadsides the visibility was poor.
And the original E12 reverse lights don't help at all when driving backwards in the dark.

So time for updating the switch panel with some extra switches and adding some extra sets of lamps to the Pastellblauer.
[*]the added switch "rear" switches the extra rear lamp when engaging the reverse gear.
[*]the added switch "wide" switches on a pair of wide beam lamps at the front together with standard lights.

1 extra 55 Watts lamp at the rear:

2 55Watts wide beam Hella oval lights added under the bumper, angled both to the side of the road, to give plenty of light to both the roadsides:
Image


and again added a relay with fuses for the wide beam lights:
Image


for protection the lights when not in use i sewed some soft covers with hella logo's

The car sometimes gets really dirty during a classic rally:

Oh yes, the sump protection as seen in the photo below it serves its purpose:
