Yea I didn't really look around to see if anyone else had a similar theme to what I wanted to do here. I am just building this for my 6 year old, as BumbleBee is his favorite Transformer. I am sure that "the other guy" has a little more experience with this than I do, but we will see how it comes out!
Truthfully, I have not been able to get a whole lot of this done lately, as the outside weather has been terrible where I live. There are some little garages at my apartment complex that you can rent, and I am about ready to give up on this Oregon weather and rent one so that I can finish my paint job. I have been cutting some metal, so I promise for you gearheads that there will be some eye candy to look at soon, when I have completed the phase of this mod that I am on right now.
I have also been messing with the LEDs quite a bit to see if I can get the proper color, and there has been no progress yet. I did get a whole bunch of resistors in the mail yesterday, so I will be working on finding the correct way to supply these with voltage to get the color that I am after.
Oh, and also, just wait and see what I did to this part:
Lets just say that she doesn't look the same anymore
