Having a deadline to meet 200 miles away and adversity being the mother of invention I decided to unscrew the trailer light lenses and put a petzl LED headlamp under each. The road was all highway so I wasn't worried about getting pulled for brake lights. it worked a treat.

GENIUS - I love it!

I think i'll buy a boat*
