    Thinking about sticking a few small flood lights under the '56 for night wheeling. Does anyone know of a cheap source? I'm not looking for anything fancy, just something that will throw a wide pattern and hold up to the environment.

    Check at NAPA for some of these: They're cheap and throw a wide beam.

    The ones on my roof rack were about $7/pair at harbor freght. They are cheap, but have held up surprisingly well.

    I run 4 tractor lights under my truck, one pointed at each tire. So far they've held up well.

    I run 4 back up lights from Academy. They are about 1" wide and about 4" long. Have a really wide beam since they are back up floods.
    Super cheap at about $12 a pair.
