So I have a few questions for those of you that have mounted lights up top. I just bought myself several Hella worklamps and plan to mount them this coming week.
1. How have you run the wires through the penthouse? did you go through an existing hole where the solar wires go or create a new hole? If you used wire loom around your wires, how do you prevent water from finding its way through the loom and inside the van? Alot of silicone around the bare wires or silicone inside the loom or is there some other way?
2. Any suggestions on type of wire and where to buy it? I was reading that the wire you buy at PepBoys or Autozone is not really good for high temperature in the engine compartment. Any suggestions on where to buy wire and what type?
2. Anyone use those cheap Hella worklamps that are about 4"x3" round and under $10? If so how is the light compared to the porch light? I was going to mount one on each side (or maybe 2). Then I also have the adjustable Hella round lamp with handle and switch for the rear that you often see on Landrovers. Any thoughts?
