Let's talk about..... bases for light bulbs - Step 4 - make it shine.....




So, I have raided my friends car shop for parts and I have found useful stuff.

How to make the bulb base:

there are several options that I played with:

1. Using crimp connectors and cut them in half. I used the blue one with a finish washer and threaded the LED through it. Painted it with faux brass - looks okay.

2. I used a wired bulb with base from HobbyLobby and half a green connector (without the metal squeezy part). Same as above, although I will get a bigger finish washer for that bulb base.

While these fixtures need more finishing, I intentionally left them as they are so that you can see what is what.

These two variations definitely look promising, however, I did not like them for the dome lights I have in mind.
