PIAA and Hella

I'm considering adding a set of driving lights to my PWD engine guards and was wondering if the PIAA 510s and 520s or the Hella 500 lights can be clocked in thier housings. I plan on getting a wide spread beam and the mounting bolts would be at 90 and 180 degrees as they enter the PWD bars.
Thanks for your help.

You might want to do more research on the maximum auxiliary load you can add to the Strom. From what I've researched, the limit is 100W , and two 55W auxiliary lights would exceed this if they're run continuously.

Watts

I was planning on using 35W lights for a total of 70.

Keep us informed on how it works out. It may be good to add a digital voltmeter so you can monitor the system voltage when you turn the lights on.

FWIW, don't bother with the Super LED driving lights. I bought a set of these from PIAA, and the light output is pretty weak.
