2nd Gen 4runner Ditch Lights

Finally had an afternoon off and decided to make some junk.
I have been going back and forth about using a set of ditch lights. No one made a kit for 2nd gens that I was aware. Plus I try to make crap for this POS when I can.
Finally caved and decided to see what I could come up with. Didn't really want to swiss cheese the A pillar or pop the windshield vent to run wires etc.
I had some left over aluminum from the 8020 roof rack project. Looked at a spare mirror and saw the 3 screw holes.

Took a few minutes to see what I could come up with.
Not too bad for V1.0. I could use a couple of longer bolts for each side. But overall i am happy with how it came out. And I am into the mounts for about $5
Lights are some Run-D 35w LED's off Amazon

At my buddy Phil's suggestion I tried to level the 2nd gen 4runner mirror mounted ditch light bracket out a bit.
I tried bending the bracket in the vice but the 2.5" x .25" thick bracket just didn't want to adjust using the vice and tools I had on hand.
1st version on top
2nd version on the bottom
So the next option was to use some nylon inserts I had in the fastener bin
Drilled them out to work with M5 bolts and sanded them down to a close height.
Not perfect but way better than bolting straight to the mirror

Looks awesome! I see that there are now some premade brackets on eBay. How are you liking the lights after a few months?
