Light Up Your Shop
You need all the light you can get in your garage or shop so you can see everything that's on and in your project Mopar. But are the lights that are in there now enough to do the job on this project, or any other future projects you may work on in the future?
The Eastwood Company's rechargeable 120-LED worklight (seen here inside the Pilot House cab of a '50 Dodge pickup project) is just what you and your garage/shop need.
It features surface-mount LEDs, which produce 1,250 lumens and are up to two times brighter than conventional LEDs.
With extendable bars featuring foam-covered hooks, the light easily mounts to any surface from 53-72 inches wide, perfect for illuminating engine bays or vehicle interiors (as seen above). Built from ABS and aluminum, the light is durable, yet lightweight. When it's time to put it away, the light folds in half for easy storage.
With an included AC/DC adapter and 12V charger, the 7.4v 2200 mAH Li-ion battery is quick to charge, and offers a long run time.
Plus, the Eastwood Rechargeable Worklight is backed by their 90-day, no-hassle warranty.

A Note From Scott
Nearly seven years ago, I began writing for Mopar Muscle, and was immediately astounded by the variety and quality of the cars you folks were building (and your passion for them), which we bring you each month in these pages, and online.
Now, I've been reassigned within Source Interlink Media, and this issue of Mopar Muscle is the last one that I'll be writing for.
Thanks are in order to Randy Bolig, who's been among the best editors-in-chief I've ever worked with anywhere; to my fellow Boilermaker Dave Young, for his tech knowledge and help (especially with the mods that we made for my daily-driven BADCOP, videos of which are on the Mopar Muscle website); and to publisher Rob Fisher, for his leadership.
I'd also like to give a big shout-out to the hundreds of Mopar owners and builders who I've chatted with about their prized rides over the years, as well as the advertisers whose products and services you've used—and continue to use—in the creation and restoration of the eye-grabbing Mopars that you'll see at shows, cruises and events everywhere.
Thanks for the ride…we'll see each other again!
