Bandit Signs



Today I was gifted with a superb array of state of the art lighting equipment and a solar charging mat from Franco Resca of Rescomp. The magic part about these lights is the fact that they are help in place by a monster magnet, so when working on the car the lights can be positioned exactly where they are needed. Over and above the magnet that holds the lights in the perfect spot you can swivel the versatile knucklehead around to make it light up the exact spot where the most light is needed! I can see these Streamlights becoming standard equipment in operating theatres around the World in no time. Add the the magnets a handy stowable hook that can also be used to position the lamp.


As well as the powerful knuckleheads we were also given the Streamlight PROTAC HL little pocket light whick has a powerful 600 lumens light.

The Solar power soaker mat called the Streamlight Solarstream will merrily charge all our electric kit in the car as we move up through Africa and Europe. Thanks a million Franco and Streamlight.


Now I’m off to my garage to fit the Streamlight Solarstream to the engine cover of the JoLon Imp.
