    Default LED Underglow mod, homemade

    Ok everyone. Extreme boredom leads to great inventions, so i present to you with no further ado LED UNDERGLOW:

    First i just took some sheet metal and cut/grinded/bent it into this shape (after a couple prototypes) which conveniently attaches using the two inside (and longer) bolts on both ends of the board. After cutting holes to attach the wires etc. i painted them aluminum color (yes it's a color):



    The 4 led lights run off a 9 volt battery so i built a tray for that in back and insulated it and the board with rubber insulation tubing to prevent shaking/rattling/damage to anything, and used a 9 volt cap to attach the wires:



    The first switches i found were 3 position but i just used them anyway (i.e. why there are three connections points on the back and I'm only using 2) but a very simple wiring job, the switch just interrupts/completes the circuit, all very simple (since this picture I've siliconed the connections to protect against water, dirt, etc):



    Finally the switch and LED panel are connected to the angled front face so it shines both down and forward (or backwards) and screwed them on:




    So how about some night pictures?


    The view from head on at ground level:



    The view straight down with the board on it's back:



    And finally a top down shot with the board rolling (yes it does illuminate EVERYTHING around it) it's really quite a pleasure to ride (especially because i built it all):



    Hope you all enjoy, just something kinda different (especially cause i ride this board at night a lot), and to show what a little creativity and 20 bucks can do

    Chances are his camera won't be able to take decent night video.
    You are not the light of my life.
    Making you happy isn't my greatest dream.
    Your smile is not all I live for;
    I've got my own stuff going on.
    But you're strange and fascinating
    and I've never met anyone like you.
    I want to give you everything.

    Just to see what you would do with it.

    from the pictures it looks like as long as it fits those same bolt patterns, all you have to do is drill 2 others.

    definitely worth drilling 2 holes in my board if u ask me..

    id pay 30-35 bucks for that

    no no it fits into normal truck holes. The two extra holes for the plate underneath it is a nose guard.

    That is SIIIIICK! I would pay for that in a heartbeat if you marketed that. Think about how safe and PIMP you would be carving at night with those. Thanks for sharing!

    That is SICK! I definately think you should try making and selling sets of those. I would easily buy a set of those.

    ALSO COLOR variation would be ill.

    thats sick. I actually built something similar.

    battery and switch in a half inch riser, wires going to two led strips velcroed to the bottom of my LY spud. it looks sick.

    its more uniform that your design, because there are leds spaced evenly along the whole board. the strips are also detatchable. the whole thing cost around 40-50, and took forever. ill post some pics when I get a chance.

    Those are awesome, but red or blue would totally look cooler.
    I want some. Safety and style.
