    Hello all, new here. I've been lurking for a while, admiring everyone's work.

    I'm fairly new to painting TFs, and this is one of my favorites.

    I got the idea to from this video. The light is a booklight. I'd like to put LEDs in his headlights, but I'm having trouble finding a setup to fit.

    C&C very welcome.

    Ebay:
    headlights

    Do it with fiber optics. Place the light source anywhere in the body that it will fit and be easily disguised and run flexible clear plastic tubes from that source to the headlights. The light does not necessarily have to fit right behind the headlight itself it can be emitted from an alternate source and transferred to the outlet source by the fiber optic/wire/plastic tubing. You can find an example at this website. http://www.sourcingmap.com/larger_i..._ux_&products_id=28546&products_imageType=jpg

    Hmm. I never really thought about fiber optics. I'll look into it. Thanks for the tip!

    Another option, look up HQOParts on ebay, they sell 1.6mm LED's that are plenty small enough to fit. They arent expensive, but they are a pain if you arent savvy with a soldering iron. I fit 2 of them inside deluxe class Swerve's head, with 4 wires, for his eyes.

    Wow, that is tiny. I think I'd have to get help on that, though. Thanks for the info.
