i made my custom light kit and i put it on my hummer!

i have used :

2 white leds
2 red leds
1 microswitch from an old R/C toy
small cables
and an altered resistance


Τhe power for this kit comes straight from batteries.
I put two small cables in the bottom of the main body where batteries are connected in one, under the electronic components.

I connected red back leds in line without any other component and while white head leds were connected parallel and then in line with the resistance.
All these putted on the black body of the hummer.
The plus pole was connected on the switch.

Because of the almost non-existent place to put leds ι have been forced to make holes in the place of head lights. After that, in the back i melt the black plastic in order to bring out, good and clear, the red plastic that makes the lights.
I have only putted the one of the head leds because i broke the other one.
You can see the ready to connect cables.

As you can see there is nothing that you can see, is good and clear!

Tommorow i will arrange cables better than today and also i will put the second head led.

Νevertheless, i have a small problem. Light pass through the transparent glue.
I have in mind something that i will try it tomorrow!
I hope not to have any kind of problem in the future.


PS. i hope this would be the right place for my threat.

i have already seen your pictures. Unfortunately my hummer body does not have som kind of place to put leds like yours.
How did you put these led on the top of the car?
