Re: The Belltown Express

Wiring weekend was a success. AC and Dc all work. Only one mis-wire...LED rope lead swapped on one of the segments. Pays off to have a EE for a squeeze sometimes! 1000' of cable pulled.

Re: The Belltown Express

BelltownBikes,

May I ask what type strip lights you used to go around the bus? I have been looking at some SMD 5050 strip lights, but think that they may be too bright.

Re: The Belltown Express

Busguy, They are "cool white" led rope lights I purchased here:

They were easy to cut and splice for the individual segments. Seem nice, and they are plenty bright.

Re: The Belltown Express

More progress: got the stater replaced, the ACR switch in, the AC and DC work, got the exhaust finished and the stack installed, got the intake back in, got the back window replaced, started on the underbody storage.
