I'm glad you're only kidding about the roll-down windows. If you actually did that, I'd almost start crying. As it is, I already feel wholly inadequate when looking at your work.

 

I am interested in the fibre-optics; I have a couple of ideas for my own projects that might require their use and I'll be interested to see how you do them.

Thank you charlie for the kind comments.   Maybe I should do some roll down windows in the furure............. :lol: .Power ones of course..............

I will be starting the fiber optics next week and since I have never covered them in my builds I will be going through that aspect with great detail including all the ways I mess it up until I get it right. :) :D

Excellent. I think everybody here appreciates not only your building, Kenn, but the fact you are willing to photograph and post the process.

That glow on the dome light is great - very moody.

Introducing electric lights to your car using LCD's and fiber optics. This next week we are going to use these items to make working lights on a 3 volt system that runs all your lighting.

Dash lights, interior lights, trunk lights, head lights and marker lights. Towards the end of the week we will go SOLAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :blink:

 

Getting materials. I have a handfull of light(LCD's) that I got out of baby monitors, old phone bases,,,computers,,,,and floppy drives. I checked them all and they work without the need for resistors. :o

Some are small enuff to be used as they are while others will be the mother light for the fiber optics...... ;)

More as we go........................
