I was just at radio shack the other day, I didn't see any that where wired
take them back , I found cheaper sets.
price at radio shack
2 blue 5mm led's not wired $4.95 each
2 metal 5mm bezels $3.99 each
pack of shrink wrap $2.99
total $20.87


now check this out
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
with wire's , switch and 9v battery connecter
$10.99 + $1.35 shipping =$12.34
i've looked all over the net for prices on bulbs, switch's and connecters, I can't come close to his prices
the only problem I came up with.
when I bought the bezels from RS they have a rubber grommet that goes into the bezel, to keep the light in, the pre-made set comes with plastic inserts, no biggie , they still fit in snug, and I was gonna put some prematex around them anyway

edt the total was 15.00, but I had 2 8mm lights instead of all 4 being 5mm

thanks!

update: i took my dremel type tool n sanded down the wheel wells and edges best i could to smooth them out,took a little too much of the rear right wheel well but its ok.i jts finished washing the body so its drying now.



light bar is not mounted,red paint will be removed and repainted a florescent orange.

the light bat really should go over a "headache" rack behind the cab but i need to mount it over the cab to mount the wiring.



decieded on a color for the truck, i am gobba paint it faskolor faspearl key lime and i have some old autographics letters i can decorate the truck with

the color will be this:


u like it for a tow truck body?

***thats not the body -thats a old picture of a body i sold on ebay!
