A little wall art side project
« on: March 20, 2019, 06:36:22 PM »
Like a lot of you I'm sure, I tend to have 10 or 20 projects in the works at all times!  Just finished some wall art for my barn and thought I'd post it.

Cool project Brad. You could fire up the blackout lights for a little mood lighting!

Lots of potential wall art there!  I figure this just might be the first part to a jeep I'll be driving around some day!

I just did that with an MB grill 2 weeks ago, but my lights don't work. :(

The grill with the lights looks great, the working lights a bonus 8)

The downside of going to all these shows looking for halftrack parts!  I always come home with other projects.

Easy to do with a good power supply.  One of the computers at work isn't going to power up very well anymore though....:)

I have a large lighted Firestone sign in the shop (4'x8'). When I put in the bathroom I put in a motion sensor so the light would not get left on, then I got the bright idea of connecting the Firestone sign to the motion sensor also. Now if the Firestone sign is on you know someone is in there....would be cool to rig up the jeep headlights also....or put the motion sensor at the shop entrance so the headlights light the shop as you walk in....I can dream up more projects than I am ever going to get done..... :(
