And some fella said 'let there be light'..
So previously we had a clear panel with a bad paint job and two whacking great holes cut in the back. Not the most promising of starts I hear you cry. Ah, but remember that sometimes you need to destroy to be able to create! pffft... say the philosophers. Get on with it cry the readers...
So as to remain legal in the UK the rear panel must 'light up' red. Anything else is of course possible but you will be breaking the law on UK roads. Personally I like the red as it fits in with the lights. It is possible to purchase paint from Foliatec known as 'Glow Bulb' I like this as it's quick and easy only requiring one coat. However you can use Tamiya clear red etc, you get the idea. For instance on my car the internals are painted Tamiya red.
|I did not paint this... This is not the finish
|Characters painted internally with clear red
|Exhaust tape (but tin foil will do)
|Remember to cover center section behind lug
|pre wired Red LED, this is a 30CM strip 60 would be best.
|'PlastiCard cut to fit over holes with foil attached to 'inside' part
|Glue (or two part epoxy into place)
|lets not have any messy wiring!
