Default making lights

Back in the chop shop again. I'm all about some fabrication!

Today I'm going to be making some custom lights. I went perusing through some stores today, looking for things of certain shapes and materials. Kind of like when I go junkyard scavenging. I ended up in this store called "World Market". Kind of a Pier1 knockoff? Anyways, I found a mini cocktail shaker for $5 and thought it would look pretty neat as a head lamp.

Didn't get far tonight, but the plan is to just put a 6v LED flashlight head inside it and wire it to a 6v sealed lead acid battery of some sort so I can recharge it.

Turns out, the top part of the shaker looks like a good candidate for a tail/brake light too

The shaker top has strainer holes that make mounting it even easier:

More to come.
