FS LED Whips, Tail Gate CB Mounts, Etc.

UPDATE as of 26/JAN/2014:

A New thread has been created to sell these hood lighting kits since I can't change the name on this one.
This thread was originally meant to sell something else and turned into a hood lighting kit production. Follow the pages if you want to read how it happened, tests, errors, feedback, etc.!

Here is the new thread, follow it to keep updated any time new kits are ready to sell.
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...group-buy.html



Here is a video of what the install is like:

26 FEB 2014
AS FOR THE WHIPS:
I will still make whips but I am researching new ways to make them more durable and more affordable. Right now it takes two much time and money to make one and the profit is way too small to continue doing it this way.


BELOW THIS IS EVERYTHING THAT WAS ORIGINALLY ON THE FIRST POST OF THIS THREAD


( for the thumbnail )

Hello all!
I'm selling a few things because I'm painfully low on money and I really want to buy some gifts to give my relatives on Christmas.
I'd appreciate it if you didn't ask me to lower the price because truthfully, I already like to sell taco stuff for cheap and see my friends happy with my LED work. Had it not been for this pinch I'm in I would rather give this stuff away for like $10 more than what it cost me to make.
So without further ado...
Here's what's for sale
(Everything is OBO)

1 RGB (ALL COLOR) LED 4' WHIP -$65 SOLD
1 Red LED 4' Whip -$45 SOLD
2 Tailgate CB Mounts from Famous Fabrication (driver and passenger side) -$60 for the pair or $35 each SOLD

*Whips are made with CB Radio Firestick antennas (don't count on them functioning as a regular antenna but it IS possible if the Led's are OFF)


I have one color control box for the RGB stick that comes with a remote and the power box which I can include for $10
I also have a 12vdc wall adapter to power the control box (you might have one laying around the house) that i can include for $10
- If you have a trd with the power outlet in the bed of your truck you can skip the wiring and hook up the wall adapter to that outlet, then power your whip by turning on that little button on your dash anytime you want.

Here are the Famous Fabrication CB antenna tail gate mounts:

They are great quality, nicely made, and look wonderful. Unfortunately they're not meant to hold the vast weight from my heavy whip antenna AND my speed tech lights so I'm going to use something stronger. Also they're still on my truck.

Here are the WHIPS:










I hand made these LED Whips with a reel of RGB LED Strips and a new CB radio Firestick, then put a heat shrink wrap around it, and a heat shrink cap at the top.
I really liked the TribalWhips led whip sticks but I never wanted to spend the $90+ for them, especially with them only coming in one color (i'm incredibly indecisive).
So I made one, turned out great, and made 3 more for my friends. The pattern on each comes out unique so no two are completely alike.
They. Are. Wonderful.
I LOVE this whip and the stares I get when I drive around the desert or even parking lots with it on. I even made it pink for "Breast Cancer Awareness" in the month of October.
Anyway, I can always make more!


I also have lots of leftover LED strips and stuff, just let me know what you need and I'll throw you a price. I think i have some white led strip left over from when i did hood lighting. Oh man. It was so easy and so rewarding that I did it for my two friends Kenny and Matt (who together we form the group TRES TACOS), my girlfriends camry, a friends 1st gen, and another friends dodge ram.

x2!! And also, is heat under the hood a concern in regards to the LED/strip itself?

Wow Seems there's quite a lot of interest in the hood lighting!
Should I put together a kit?
To answer your questions:
I wired the lights to a pressure switch where the hood lies, and then to an external fuse (now goes to my blue sea fuse block )
Heat is NOT and issue. Lights have been functioning for 8-12 months now with the only problems coming from the pressure switch.
I think the reason the switch has been going out is because it's not waterproof so the connections are going bad. I have a friend who found a better one but I need to check out the local store where he said he got it.

Homer, I'll get back to you ASAP! Gonna check out UPS for advice on shipping a long stick like this.

More details on the hood lights:
If you order the strips, make sure you get the waterproof kind. There are many manufactures of these strips and having bought many reels I've had more than one come that wasn't waterproof. In fact the ones under my hood are NOT waterproof.
(Non waterproof strips don't have that silicone gel on top of the LED Diodes)
What I did to protect them and help them stick was spray about 5 layers of clear plastidip (rattle can)
It put a nice thick coat that actually helped disperse the light and made it stick to the hood better. (China 3M isn't too reliable but it works)

I drilled a small hole in my hood where the strip starts for my ground wire (if you don't want to drill just run another wire for the ground)
Then I fished the wire behind the little support columns on the inside of the hood. Ran it stealthy all the way to the far bottom right (driver side) corner of the hood, basically where the hood mount is. Then ran that wire to the pressure switch, then to the fuse, then the battery.

I'll take pics for you guys later. It's super easy and as long as it's fused, it's pretty hard to mess up. I've done it to 3 2nd gen tacos, 1 first gen, 1 dodge ram and my girlfriends 97 camry! Lol. I mean it's simple enough the fun part is really how clean of a job I can do.
The results are priceless.
Should I put together a kit? What do you think a reasonable price would be to sell it for?
If you don't mind me asking you guys...

They look bright enough to use as work lights when working under the hood at night time. Does the truck need to be on for the LED lights to work? It'll make things much easier. It'll come in handy for my dads T100 also.

There's the attention I was hoping for! Wow! Inbox had blown up!
All PM's replied to.

To answer JOETACOMA, you don't need your truck to be on to use these. If you hook up the lights to a switch in your hood then it runs off your battery and because of the low power draw, it can run for pretty much months. I actually changed out my waterpump with the help of The_Traveler and Airdog using only the lighting from the hood. It is very sufficient!

As a member of the Tres Tacos, and Brad's friend, I can personally vouch for the products! Having helped him make these, I can tell you how much effort and attention to detail Brad gives in the production process. I have a whip, hood lights, and the first ever rock lights on my truck. They have lasted over a year of abuse without a single hiccup.
