Abstract

A light is mounted to an arm which is flush mounted to a vehicle panel when closed so as to be unobtrusive and which is pivoted outwardly for directing illumination from a light source mounted to the interior side of the arm. With such a system, the light source is hidden when not in use and, when extended, can be moved to a variety of selected positions and focused to provide a light pattern to selected areas. In a preferred embodiment, the pivoted arm is coupled to a damper such that the arm can be moved to any number of desired, selected positions and remain in the selected position.
