today im going to show you how im making my search lights

i start with a basic r/r light kit from china, it was about 11.00 usd

whats nice about its 1/10 scale and it plugs right into your receiver or a 4.8 battery pack

Image

next i cut each light bucket from the main light bar, keeping the main bar as a part of the light bucket. next i cut a hollow round plastic tube for the neck, next i drilled a small hole in the tip of the tube and the light bucket , this will let the light buckets tilt

Image

next

next i cut another sleeve that fits over light bucket pole but is smaller then the deck sleeve . will also attach the wire tip/plug

next i flipped the deck upside down, yellow/black wires are the 4 search lights, the red/black with white tips are for extras light for boom later. the red/black wire with black tip is power for the lights

Image

the search light are up and working
