I'll start a new thread guys
@RunPlayBack @torqueboards Remember these cool lights we found on ebay for $20 a set? Evolve now sells them for $70. I guess their mounting clips are worth $25 a piece....
I used led rgb controlled by an arduino nano ( this picture shows it with an arduino uno ). pretty bright and i have them on a rotating pattern loop.
don't forget I designed a mount for these as well
$70 wow! Talk about markup
Just used the standard bike mount. Does the job although running into a wall would kill the light. Not sure that mounting to my truck hanger would be much safer since the bottoms of my trucks get a fair amount of hits and wear. Thanks to Michaelinvegas, I got a set a Shredlights on order. Should solve my issues.
Yeah that looks dope. Definitely better than mounting by the trucks because of the drop.
I have been told that you can mod the shredlights mount to put it on top of the deck if you need...just use some small washers
That's what I was thinking for the Shredlights. Not sure I'll have the clearance underneath.
We're the fucking DIY guys...we should be able to figure out brackets!!!!!! Lol
Wow that is impressive.
This thing is tiny. Wire to your battery pack and put your xml cree in series...they also have this driver in less amps if you need it....
Thanks man. They definitely gets the job done. After soldering them to the driver in series I turned them on, set the distance of beam I like, then used hot glue to set the wires and beam spread in place by filling in the back of the head somewhat..
This is my 3d printed mount for a blitzu light and a gopro (or clone). STL available here.
I printed at 50% infill using ABS. It seems pretty tough. The light is not great for seeing stuff, but it's definitely visible to oncoming traffic. The camera is pretty good, as good as my old Go Pro anyways.
