Under Jeep Shop Light

After replacing my hot old kitchen can light fixture innards with some LED floods from Home Depot and seeing how bright they were and how cool they remained I thought about building a little box and putting it on casters with one of the fixtures pointing straight up for working under the Jeep. Looking around at the HD, I found a round plastic 6" NDS drain box with a flat bottom that was just the right size to pop the light fixture in, and it doesn't need casters because it's light enough to just slide on the floor. I used a 4" rubber Jim Cap to cover the pipe inlet, (but anything could be used), and added a hanger/puller arounder made out of a piece of 3/16" rod I had laying around. Added a cord...done deal in about 1/2 hour.

Light fixture $25
Drain box $9
Stuff I had $0

Night pics with no other shop lights on and no flash on camera (except for the last pic). I also found that the pipe inlet side makes a nice stand for shooting light sideways. Was measuring and making a weld on piece for my lower track bar bracket and the light worked great sideways.
