My own Megatron

Thanks guys.

 

I'm looking forward to adding some more mods on the inside. I'm wanting to add some blue LEDs under the dash and seats. I've also been eyeing an LED sound activated equalizer that's about the size of the rear window. I'm just not great at wiring stuff on my own, so I'm a bit scared to go that extra step.

show them the purple light up interior!!!

 

I didn't get purple, but I did go with blue. So, I'm going to say its energon flowing. I'll post those pics once I pry my pc from my daughter.

 

Here we go:

If the first pic was a little clearer, you would be able to see that the screen says "I am Megatron" and below it, "Megatron is Online".

Well, it's been over a year since my last update so I figured it was about time to show off some new stuff.

 

First, the old el wire in my dash started to look like this:

That's no good. So, I had to replace it. I like the new stuff better actually.

While I was ordering new stuff for the dash, I decided to do the doors as well:

I also went ahead and took care of the back interior lights and got them to match the blue LEDs in the front:

I also figured I would take care of the foot wells. I originally had some lights that I had bought from Wal-Mart down there, but they weren't bright enough. So, I kept the wiring, sliced off the lights and spliced in some LED strips in their place:

You can also see the Decepticon logo in the front speakers as well.

 

Then, continuing on my blue LED theme, I went ahead and replaced the flood lights under each of the doors. I also added a nice little touch to each of the front doors. It's a projector that shines down on the ground. It's hard to see how nice it looks because of the loose gravel in the picture, but that Decepticon logo is super crisp:

I also replaced the lights in the trunk with super white LEDs. And I put bright white LEDs in the visor mirrors as well. Word of advice on those, don't look directly at them. Especially at night. They will blind you. Also swapped out the light above the license plate with a bright white LED. Sorry, no pics of those right now.

 

So, that's where he is as of now. There will be a big update on Saturday night or Sunday. Ol' Megatron is going under the knife and will be getting some new eyes. But that is one that will have to be seen. Describing it won't do it justice. I can't wait.

 

Hope you all liked Megatron so far.

Thanks guys. The projectors are one of my favorite mods. Anytime someone sees them for the first time up close, it becomes an instant talking point. The best thing about all of these mods is that I was able to do them myself. You really get a sense of accomplishment when other people like the work that you have done. Those projectors were actually one of the easiest mods I've done. I did it in my church parking lot while waiting for my daughter. About 10 minutes each door.
