Yeah, I have to change the bulbs though. The turn signals have to be amber or red. Thanks!

Yeah it is :lol: Got it on clearance for $.80, even though the sign clearly said $.25 :wtf: Either way its better than the $5 they originally wanted for it.

Thanks!

Coming from a guy who makes his money in a body shop this is awesome. The styrene was a great way to be cheap but what realy makes this is how well you did it. The end result is very clean and looks just as good as the big money customs. Great work man!

I guess I'll post mine up, got the idea at a 4th of July party after burning my hand lighting fuses all night, finally got all the stuff to do it.
Here's my firework launcher.

To ignite the fuse I use 10ohm 1/4watt resistors held on by alligator clips connected to about 50ft of speaker wire

Here's my project... It's a solder fume extractor! Made from a power supply fan, it runs off of a 12v transformer and sucks solder fumes away from you. Spend an afternoon to lengthen your life. w00t.

If you are going to build this, us a wall wart that is around 12v or lower and has a milliamp rating as close to your fan draws as possible, as transformers change voltages based on current draw.

It's mounted to a harbor freight helping hands with a bolt going through the screwholes and tightened into the spot for an alligator clip.
