    Should I post my LED setup? I have been seriously considering a Rigid setup as well. Do they make any with cutoffs yet?

    Post on the LM forum with an update on the process. So this might actually end in a purchasable project. Would someone mind posting a link to the local motors project to the other atom forum to draw up some more input? The more people that get involved, the more likely we have a cool set of headlights at the end



    "Thank you very much for joining our journey toward the Ultimate Atom Headlight Assembly. As owner's, we really appreciate your valuable input. Your perception's of our endeavors, is the first order of importance in design. The LM Community of Designers has been busy preparing several design alternatives for presentation, and as usual their concept's of design are stunning.
    The adaptation of a design for actual manufacture and implementation will also be addressed. The constraints of cost and modification procedures is more important after the initial rough design concepts are completed. This journey began with an opportunity for resolution, and each stage presents it's own opportunities for resolution.
    There are many avenues of construction. Negative lay up molds, injection molds, vacuum molds, or simple metal bending and bolting on of after market lights. Cost is always a constraint, but there is a place where desire justifies cost. Together as Owners and Designers we need to find that middle ground between desire and cost, and deliver a high quality resolution to the opportunity presented by the Atom's poorly conceived headlights.
    I'm hoping that soon we will have a gallery of the many initial concept designs for Atom Owners to evaluate. Each design will have pros and cons. We really need more Atom Owners like yourselves to participate in this journey. Please advise your forum friends of our efforts on their behalf, and encourage them to share their opinions and photos with us. "

    I use a Rigid Industries LED setup with KC clamps doesn't look any better than stock but I can see during night driving.

    How's the beam pattern/cutoff? Do you get brights flashed at you? I was thinking about these: https://www.rigidindustries.com/product-p/91231.htm

    I don't think they'd look too bad. I also considered a rigid light bar over my head on the roll bar.
