so when it came to the lights on the rear engione compartment , i was right , they all were burnt. soooooooooooooo, time to break out some new ones . i have rc4wds bruiser light kit here, perfect for what i need for running lights. i use 2 sets, 4 reds and 4 yellow, did some splicing. plugs right into the receiver , later i will add and on/off swith, the bumper lights are fine. ive also added a back up light top center

today im going to show you how im making my search lights
 
i start with a basic r/r light kit from china, it was about 11.00 usd
 
whats nice about its 1/10 scale and it plugs right into your receiver or a 4.8 battery pack

SANY2251.jpg

next i cut each light bucket from the main light bar, keeping the main bar as a part of the light bucket. next i cut a hollow round plastic tube for the neck, next i drilled a small hole in the tip of the tube and the light bucket , this will let the light buckets tilt

SANY2253.jpg

next i ran small wiring through the rod and attached the light buckets with 2 micro screws

next i cut another sleeve that fits over light bucket pole but is smaller then the deck sleeve . will also attach the wire tip/plug

SANY2259.jpg

next i flipped the deck upside down, yellow/black wires are the 4 search lights, the red/black with white tips are for extras light for boom later. the red/black wire with black tip is power for the lights

SANY2260.jpg

the search light are up and working
