The question of how usable are the aircraft styled Woodlites comes up every now and then. So I decided to test them and do a video of it so everybody can judge for themselves. I bought this car that has wood lights on it a couple years ago, but I have never driven it at night as of yet So here you have it!

Hi Joel, the lights are quite bright. Did you have them on high beam or just low beam? I'm guessing but the focal point of the lights on the road looks to be too close to the car and may need adjusting.
You have a fabulous looking L29 it's a real GEM.
Videos like this are what we need to share. In the near future I hope to make one of my 810 Cord when it is running again.
Thanks for sharing this with all of us.

Terry,
I had them on high. They were dim, and it was hit and miss as to whether they would even come on when I turned the switch. So I took the switch apart and cleaned it up good and built up the eroded contacts with solder. After I put the switch back together, the low beam didn't work. I dind't take it apart again for fear of breaking off the retainer tabs. I agree, they could use a little aiming.

I'm glad you guys like the video, it was fun to make.
