Cool!! When you get it  share what you think. I was skeptical and when I first seen it, thought ho-hum just another light. But when I charged it up and strapped it to the hood, made me glad I picked it up.  :2thumbs:

Got the two lights today.
They are very bright and light up the entire engine bay . Swivel 180 independently.
Still charging them.
It clamps to the hood well.
One problem is one of the light halve of one light does not shut off , maybe that will start working right but I doubt it.

I have the one above.  Its fluorescent with a nice 25 foot cord.  Looked into these and was told the LED models, have light that is a bit directional.  Corded is better than cordless as here is no recharge time.

I called Eastwood today about the light not working ,a woman answered on the second ring, I explained one of lights is not shutting off, she verified my address and said another is on the way.
They will get more of my business.

When I use a headlamp I reach for this one, solid aluminum, heavy, very bright uses a weird battery but they sell them there , bought at Batteries & Bulbs.
Still have the original headlamp my father gave me probably 25 years ago that resemble glasses.

That is great news on the replacement unit.  :cheers:


I have had nothing but great experiences with Eastwood. Only one issue with the same great end results. I was doing some work out of town, ordered some paint, and for some reason their system changed the shipping address to my main address and the paint ended up 1200 miles from where I needed it. Called them up and explained to them and they sent another full order to the address that was in the original order @ no charge. The guy helping me said he could see where the address got changed by the computer, but had no explanation as to why.

The way they answered and reposnded meant a lot to me, I know things can go wrong, I offered to send back the damaged light.,hell it could have been made on  a Mon or Fri, .
 I Watch where my me money goes and don't mind spending my money if a value is there.

Damn I wish  had gone out and gotten the power steering rebuild kit  this week.
Haha.
