LADYk: Us your seach engine and type in "snowglow" it is a company in the states thats sells them specifically for snowmobiles. If you get any info please post it i was looking at them a while back thanks.
I've been thinking of turning my sled into a christmas tree as well.. But I came to the conclusion that if I'd put neon bars underneath it nobody would ever see them, because they'd be covered with snow all the time. Just a thought...
When they moved the site I think some of the old posts got deleted. I put orange lights under my hood and running boards this winter and it looked great. At night the ones under the running boards really glow off the snow and even when covered with ice still show up nice. I had pics but lost them somewhere. Any way what most of the guys in that post along with myself did was go to the truckstop or local hardware store and buy clearence lights. They come in a variety colors and models. For the running board lights I used one with a metal shield. It didn't even break when I totaled my sled. Under the hood I used a double bulb light. If you have any more questions ask away.
I use two purple round mood lights behind the hood screens on my cat I used the kind that have a selfadheisive backing and need no ground wire. They are avalible at most truck stops or trailer supply stores. or a truck parts store like a kenworth or peterbuilt dealer in there parts department. I like the no ground wire type because there is not much metal on the hood of a snowmobile. Makes my cat look like it has glowing eyes. the other plus to those lights is they are a low voltage. so if you want you can use more of them and still don;t have as much current draw.
I had a set on an Arctic Cat once when Cat offered them in their accessory catalog. They looked cool enough. Then one time when we were out riding on a day when there had been a light rain the night before. It then froze and made a thick crust of icy snow on top of the snow. We took off thru a field of that stuff and the ice shattered my lights under the running boards. They had a pretty thick protective tube around them too. That was an expensive lesson.
