Old Emergency Light

A few years back I found an old emergency light in a pile ready to be thrown away.  I was working at a pipe fab shop at the time.  So I rescued it, cleaned it up and put it on a shelf.  A few days back a friend's son was looking for a light for his room.  Told him I have just the thing.  We stripped all the old 6 volt charger, battery and lights out of it and plan to go back with LED lights.  

 

Turns out the lights are 6 volt sealed beams.  They are GE 4510-1 auto utility bulbs.  4 3/8" diameter.  In good shape.  I think I can turn these into fog lights for the 47 P15.  There are a couple of old antique tractor light housings in my parts bin.  I think these can be cleaned up and used for fog lights.  Just need to build some brackets.

Back up lights?....  (I have saved some of those 6V bulbs out of emergency lights as well - I think about the same diameter, but they're in plastic housings instead of the much more desirable chrome plated steel one you show here.)  I DO like to have lots of light when backing up.....

I gave the fixture to my friends son before I knew what the lights were.  So the nice housings stay with his project.  I get the 6 volt bulbs and I'll figure out another way to mount them.

 

Going for a steam punk look.  The 6 volt meter and indicator lights will work when it's complete.
