Default Underhood automotive light bar

Recently I was in Race Proven Motorsports shop and noticed that they had a bunch of these new style lights. The are about the width of your hood and hook on to each end and are adjustable from 40"-70". I typically see them for around $90 which seems a little high. Anybody know where to find them cheaper? Here is a pic.

Why not buy a regular florescent light and attach a couple of magnets to it? Probably less then $35 total and it will attach In different places and positions throughout the entire car? Just my 2 cents....

Lights get banged up and accidents happen. Can you imagine a flourescent light break and having all that lass and powder all over your engine compartment or hatch? Magnetic? That wount hold up a light fixture.

They sell them with a plastic cover on them? The one pictured is just in a casing? You have to use common sense. They sell them at Ghetto Wal-mart for $9 and its 24" long ready to use and the bulb is covered in a case. Add some magnets and its the same $90 light they are trying to sell you. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Lights-of-...White/17163528

I have one exactly like that although red in color made by Neiko, bought it a couple of years ago, don't think I paid over $100 but after looking around that $90 price is cheap, might grab one, even on ebay, these work good but I would not pay over $100 for one, IMHO.

I recently purchased a magnetic cordless LED worklight off ebay. I am impressed with its performance, and I paid under $30 for it. I think it is a "Cobra" brand. At the same time, I bought a Cobra brand small folding magnetic cordless worklight for $5, again ebay, and I use it all over the place.

This thread is not about a hand held cordless light.

Make? Its almost 4' long with 2 hooks on the side. Tell me where I can find a light that long that is as durable as a hand held work light?

Man I would say go ahead and shell out the money for one. Its one of the best shop tools you'll ever buy. It's also great to clip to the roof when doing interior work and also great to clip under the car when working underneath it.

The fluorescent ones are better imo because the light is cleaner and less blinding/glare than led.

I bought one a few years ago, I think its called a Sabre light. Its red. I liked it so well that I bought my dad one and a few friends. I think I actually paid a little more than 100.00 but like I said, definately worth it.

I have a sabor ion LED hood light it was 250 from snap on and works great. I have dropped closed hoods even ran over it and still works great.
