Default TIPS ON LIGHTS.......WHAT WORKS???

Ok im gonna light my next drift body and I want to do it without buying 100 bucks of led's. One guy told me I could use 3mm and 5mm train lights and they would work great and not break the bank. Any kits that are out there you guys know of let me know. I might do another vette since the light buckets look good.

There is a company called tiny brite lights that has some nice ones for good money. I know the do them for planes and I think some car sets as well. They will do custome sets as well, but I have no idea what that costs. I have a set of there light on a plane I have and they are very bright.

I've always soldered up my own sets with a couple of LED's, some resistors and a 9v rechargeable battery. Buy the LED's and resistors from some online electronics store or another, and do it yourself

you could do it for less than $10.
