Christmas lights

I had some battery powered (clear) lights and used them for the head lights and tail lights in a model car. It was a mustang and the head lights had a yellow glow that looked realistic. Ran wires out the bottom of the model to a battery pack. Peace
What is the voltage needed? Doodado
let me know what you do with them, cause i did this at christmas time, but didnt know what to do with them<br>
Never throw away the cords, they can be recycled for the copper. Make a tiny amout of money also.
you could scrap the cables i made quite a bit of money with insulated wire at the scrap yard
its good and nice, plz add some more tips if u can.
you can break the ends off, fill them with gun powder and use them as blasting caps for model rockets<br />

I did this at the weekend, but didn't need the screwdriver or pliers to extract the bulbs. Like you I haven't got around to using them yet.<br /> <br /> L<br />
