im done! and its all hooked up and it looks better then i expected...even with my little %$@# up's you cant even tell and it looks awesome....the only thing i have to make a littl better..is the light distribution....i took 4 by 8 peices or sheet aluminum and kinda shaped into a half circle and put the light in the center..well what happened is when i tried to pout the lenses back in they wouldnt go because the sheet was sticking out to far..so i cut about 1/2 an inch off each side and put them back in...they fit but now the problem is the light in concetrated in the xcenter (the "O" and the "I" "A") but the outer edges still get the light...
now with the sockets if u put the bulb in one way the bulb will be brighter then the other way..so what im gonna is move the holes for the lights outwards about an inch and put the bulbs in the "high" setting...im going to do this tomorrow..i took a pic of it tonite so ill do a before and after.....
it came out very well
"crazy"
any one who wants to do this after they see my pics ill give you DETAILED instructions

im not tryin to make excuses but i do have it done...i just have to paint the epoxy and tale some more pics...but unfoutunetly the weather in michigan is svery cold and snowy so i havent gotten a chance to finish it..


TONY heres my last post on my lenses but it was under a different subject

ive actually been trying some different things to get it the way i want...first i just cut it out coverd it with some red tape and tried that...then i filled it in with silicon but i didnt like that..now i finally got it the way i want..i filled it with clear epoxy..and bought some transparent red paint that im gonna use after i tape off the borders...the only thing i gotta work on is the light distribution...i got the power to it i just need to get that balance...the first time the inside letter "onti" were brighter then the outside then i moved it out a little and it was backwards...i might have to put in 4 bulbs or maybe 3 to get it right but the look if it it freakin awesome....im gonna take some more pics when i get it painted prolly sat or sun..
