    Seeing in the dark

    Thinking about setting up a pair of spot lights on the 86in S1. I am drawing up a sketch of a nudge-bar type setup that would seat either 2 spotlights or an LED light bar fore of the grill, mid height.
    My question is: would the original dynamo be sufficient to generate suitable power to run the lights?

    Original generator and battery system would have been sufficient to run a couple of 55/60 watt prefocus bulbs in Lucas driving/fog lights, a la Rover 75. Say 10amp draw. (120 watts)

    You will also need relay and separate fusing system. Run the lights directly off the battery through own fuse and ignition switched fused relay off of high beam with a driving light switch in series. (low beam for fogs)

    If wishing to use LED bar beware positive earth if yours is such.

    Cheers
