Introduction: EL Wire Motorcycle Tron Helmet
I always liked the tron movies and Daft Punk and I wanted one of the cool helmets to wear it with my scooter .
This instractable will be easy to build but need patience and Daft Punk music :)
Step 1: Parts
- Your helmet (any kind).
- EL wire* (any color you like).
- Duct tape or double face duct tape.
- Glue gun.
Alligator wires (for prototype only).
*The EL Wire I used in this tutorial is 2 meters and specially made for cars , it need 12V from the car lighter .
* I used 2' 9V batteries connected in series = 16V to light this , it should be OK.
It should be fine if you used shorter wire or larger , It depends on your design .
*The batteries I used was received from the electronics build night by Jameco .
Step 2: DESIGN
This mod should be permanent , so you should be sure about the design.
First you should imagine a design and draw it on a paper or do like me and just start with duct tape .
Put the duct at the angles and try to tension it to see how it will look.
note: the double face tape I used was a complete fail and pain , so I used normal duct tap .
Step 3: Test and Redesign
After building your design prototype with duct tape , light it up to see how it really looks.
If you like it , start gluing with glue gun under the same places you put the duct tape and the glue the straight lines .
In my case I needed more enhancement to the design .
Step 4: Turn on and Enjoy Your Ride ;)
