Installing the Axial Light Buckets

By Axial Staff on Dec 15, 2009

Here is a quick How-To, on installing the Axial Light Buckets on a lexan body.

Part needed:

AX80045 - Axial Light Bucket Set (Black)

AX80049 - Axial LED Lens Set – Yellow/Clear (4pcs)

AX24257 - Simple LED Controller w/LED lights (4 white and 2 red)

Once you have a good idea of where you want to install the light buckets.  Take a body reamer and make two starting holes.

Make sure you don’t go over, the light buckets do have a small lip on them so you have some space. Just take your time and slowly open up the holes to size.


Next I took my Exacto blade and removed the remaining material.


The Axial Light Buckets are very easy to install and give a really clean finished look.



Then lastly, pop on the lens. I used yellow for the side marker.

    That is sweet. So when we order a light set does it come with the buckets and lenses? or are they separate?

    Hey Ed, you buy the light buckets and lenses separate so you have the choice of color. Here are the part #’s: AX80045 Axial Light Bucket Set (Black), AX80049 Axial LED Lens Set – Yellow/Clear (4pcs), AX80053 Axial Light Bucket Set (Chrome)

    Hi Alex,

    The AX90014 Honcho Kit comes with the clear lenses (2). The yellow lenses are available separately here:

    Or if you want to purchase the complete light bucket set the yellow lenses are included with the black or chrome.
