Help a santa out!
12 volt battery and inverter?
I'm betting that if you do a Google search you can find some battery powered lights that would work.
Yeh, should be able to find some LED lights to work with a battery.
$3 Walmart led strings
Harbor freight $17 inverter
12v jump starter box
I just used some battery-powered LED lights that came from Dollar General. They were less than $5 each. The great thing about them was that I was able to put them on the spokes of my '24 Touring. Just make sure you secure the battery pack as close to the hub as possible and secure it well with zip ties.
How many cars do you see driving around with lights on their wheels?
I have purchased battery operated lights at Big Lots and used the free or cheap batteries from Harbor Freight. Make sure to secure the battery pack like Cameron said.
Thanks guys. Guess santa needs to go shoping
I purchased four sets of LED lights from Wally World (Walmart) and plan to use an extra 12VDC to 120VAC converter I have. Steal a battery from one of my quads and we're all set.
Forgot to mention I purchased four valve stem LED blinkers from ebay for $6. You can chose what type of pattern you see when your wheel rotates.
Have all supplies. Red ball for radiator cap, still looking for antlers but i have lots of lights
For the tent when camping with the scouts I use led battery operated xmas lights. I think they use 3 AA batteries.
Got a good start
Oh my! That's fun!
Good on you Santa!
I see your driving the nails thru the fender to hold on the lights...do you just bend them over to keep everything attached?
Denis,it just looks that way. Those are actually zip tie cut offs. 40+ per wheel.
I just hope the extension chord is long enough to go a mile. Probably have to go through town . Thats a lot of chord
It is, Dallas, but at least you will be able to find your way home!
That should do it!!!!!
