Default Hairba11's TF2 project

So I traded a Jugg for a tf2. It has a lexan yota-ish shell, and came with a new in box Mojave body set.

I used some Rustoleum apple red (from my f100 1:1), some flat black (from my f350 1:1 liftgate), and some dark brown (from my s10 1:1 interior)
And gave it some color after figuring out this yellow plastic wouldn't take dye.

Then since it had all the holes for lights already, I decided to go all out.
$5 on eBay got me 100 (5x20ea) red, blue, white, green, and yellow led's.
I already had resistors so away it went.

I got the front end detailed using some 5mm incandescent bulbs for the headlights and a little shoe goo and aluminum foil in the light buckets.
Yellows went in the bumper and front corner markers.

I swear this worked easier when I was thinking about it

That's a little neater

So these are a PITA to get in with the bulbs in place.
White for reverse, red for brake and running lights

I also illuminated the dash. Blue behind the gauges and hvac, and green behind the radio

I'm using an old dig switch setup for my reverse and brake lights. And since I already have one servo going in, I might as well have two. I used a m2x16 screw in the servo, and used 1/8" heat shrink tube to connect the wheel to the bolt head.

Got some stuff wired up yesterday.



And naturally, I need a servo reversing Y for the steering, and the servo CA'd between the two micro switches is dead so I get to tear that apart.

Love the color the incandescent headlights turned out. Where did you pick the bulbs from? I am also looking for less white than LED lights, but was thinking of painting white LEDs to get a more yellowish color.

eBay. Searched 5mm incandescent bulb. Got a 20 pack of 6v for $4-5. You can also order warm white led's. Aim for 2500K if you can find a color temp. 3500 is blue, 3000 is white.

Now that's very cool, thanks for the tip I am buying a set as soon as I can find one that is not 1.76$ and 26$ shipping lol! Probably because I live in Canada... I see another one with better shipping price but it is 12V instead of 6v.

Got the winch running off an old duratrax mini quake esc, got the light switches mounted under the bed. https://vimeo.com/199568241

Thanks guys. It is really ugly under the lid. And the battery in it currently is huge, I had to move wires out of the way to keep them from hitting the steering wheel.
I have a lot of work cut out to try and get an interior in and find places for everything.

Replaced the masking tape wire hold down with self adhesive zip tie mounts to clean up the wiring. Added a spacer to the brake/rev switches so the servo horn quit dragging on the bed floor. Also found a micro toggle switch so I can turn the light bar on and off.

I'm really liking where you are going with the Toyota. The lights add so much too it, but they are an utter complete pain in the arse. I started to wire up the Porsche and decided to light up the Jimmy body instead. Talk about needing several beers to get motivated.

These weren't too awful bad. I just really had hoped for interior. It seems like the cab is full already
