USA Storm Chasing Expedition - 6th May 2011
With this much down time (no storms), I can continue to add to my cars modifications.
Hmmmm.. What do we have here?
I see some holes in the car deco.
I see screws (nylon ones)....
Oh... A bracket.. I wonder what goes here..
This was HELL.... It took over an hour to do this.
All my tools are in Sydney, and I don't want to acquire new ones that will only be used once.
I used a screwdriver/drill for $12.99 (Great Value), and a Hex/Drill bit set for $6.99 (A Bargain!)
It was a little messy though.
After around 3 hours, these are done...
More cables... what else is in the box?
Very clean work...
So... What am I mounting?
Can't tell you yet..
Attaching the Anderson Power Pole connectors.. (Great little devices these)
AHA... It's an emergency light..
With an angled mounting bracket.
That's two mounted... All I need is power..
These lights are made by Tomar Electronics in the USA.. 12 Leds Each, VERY BRIGHT...
The lights draw on average 1.6 Amps @ 12V Each... (That's a lot for LEDs)
OMG... what a mess.
Ahhhhh.. That's better.
Very clean soldering work here.
12.68 Volts.. Very good..
Testing the light.. (I touched the terminals together accidentally and blew the fuse)
The 7 Way Power Splitter, Rated @ 45 Amps
Let's test the switch shall we?
OHHH.. Beautiful.. (Damn I'm a nerd).... Although you have to admit... This is very clean work.
These are really going to protect people rear-ending my car on the highways in low visibility..
