That’s beautiful, how did you make the channel on the side? Also with a knife?


#428

Used a small bit in a small multi tool e.g a dermal tried same with the top but made to big a chanel


#429

Thanks, I might try it in the future. The art on the the top is also made by you with the pyrographer?


#430

Yer I drew the design then burnt it in with a low watt soldering iron took a wile


#431

what is the voltage on the el wire used ?


#432

Using a 12v inverter but I run all led and el wire off a 3s lipo zippy compact u can use any voltage but 12v is best brightness wise


#433

thats what i thought. Thanks my man. Great work.


#434

Excellent job! That’s some damn fine EL wire detail. I think you’ve set new high water mark for artistic design and creative lighting. That would be awesome if you could add a battery level indicator in the form of a single red LED with a couple little red LED rings (like a bulls eye/target) to the girl’s eyeballs. When her evil eyes are glowing big and red, it’s fully charged, and they get smaller as voltage drops. Definitely post up some night/dark pics too. I sure do love me some EL wire. :thumbsup:

Few posts up, on vacation now, but will make some edits to give some more space for the trunks.


#436

Cheers for the comments an el indicator would be cool it already has one tho

looks a bit bright in the pic but is visible.


#437

cool looks great

Headlight in progress:


Turns out threadlocker causes polycarbonate to crack. Fixed this later.
And done:

I set up a microcontroller to read the throttle position and control the rear light based on that, to give myselft tail light/brake lights.
Same controller also used with ch3 on my gt2b for high beams/low beams.


#439

Do you have any further information on that? Separate thread?

Please? :slight_smile:


#440

@b264 Some of it’s in my build thread Here.


#441

I use this stuff for or around plastic but it takes like 3 days to harden.


#442

can you link directly to what you bought or something similar? looking to do the same thing on mine


#443

Here’s my lights. Just 10mm LEDs through an smps regulator to the battery.




#444

I just replaced the window and used the friction from the threadlocker that was already there and hardened. The o-ring provides plenty of preload and it’s not a structural connection.


#445

Just got these puppies in, gonna cut the fins off, it’s all metal, quite happy(cig for size reference)



#446

Here are some 12v head and tail lights I created to fit caliber trucks (they may fit others).The headlights are designed to hold two 20mm oval lenses over the LEDs to create a nice spread on the ground that keeps the light out of the eyes of passersby. Both mounts house custom PCBs that are linked on each page.
