@AndyG, you so funny. Here's what I did, $

14 leds from Oriellys, and a spring to hold my broken plug on while hood is down. (For quick disconnect, and holds it up if forgotten) the bracket the light bars are attached to is actually an aluminum case cover salvaged from a mini charger that died. Covered the spring with a section of fuel hose, to dampen and protect it.

I like the GM retractable hood light mod that I found here. It looks like this one but I bought a new one on Ebay for $10. I wonder if they have all been sold. The seller had a bunch.
I installed one of these and kept the OEM hood light too. I discovered the LED lights I bought for my back up lights are the same bulb as the GM retractable light.

Hey bud do you have a link where I can find this. Can't seem to find it on the google machine
Yes - see the reply from Voodooridr - that's the one I've got. Ebay has a listing, too, but direct ship from China. I'd rather work with Amazon with someone who has them in stock here in the States.
