I got a little bit more done, not on the LED side, but the interior is pretty much finished, just some small details to do, the body has been painted, up next for it is smoothing out the paint.

here is the second set of LEDs for this build, I have the headlight/taillight flasher kit, and two more LEDs, the two LEDs I got are red/blue flashing, these are for the push bar
Posted Image
and here is the pushbar all wired up , I messed up and drilled the holes to far over the wrong side of the leads for the LEDs, but the leads coming off fill up the holes good enough

Cool. Are you going to put a battery in the trunk or will you do the old power-feed from a permanent base trick?

Either way, I really like this.

Slight set back, well a few, I manage to break on the LEDs for the lightbar, well two of them. I had the lightbar glued to the roof , was working on the wiring for it, did a test to make sure the wiring was good, noticed two of them not working, so in order to get them out, I had to break glue seal, which led to chipping of the paint, nothing I cant fix , but now I have to wait tell late next week before I can proceed. I have to have the interior tub glued in place before I can start the rest of the wiring

That stinks.
I'm waiting on some led's to arrive so I can start wiring up one of my Po-Leece projects, you've inspired me :)
Hope you don't run into any more snags.

I take it Danno thats the one you have been working on for a very long time?,

I am not letting this little set back get me down, it happens, these LEDs are great, but cant take a lot of handeling or test fitting, but the down side with this project, I cant really do lot , or move forward tell the lightbar is all done, and wires ran to the trunk area.

And like they say, the clock is ticking :lol:

Instead of a 9v battery, you can group three of the 3v coin batteries together, that might fit into a gas tank.

I knew it, I just knew it, I should of kept this to myself, you are going to try and upstage me , huh? :lol: :o :angry:

I could use the 3v coins, there is room in to get everything to fit in the truck area with using a 9v , but if I were to add anything else, I would probably run out of room
