We have all seen the price of the Lighted Limo Mod for Addams Family (at around $200.00). My buddy wanted one for his machine, but did not want his wallet lightened quite that much.
I found the car on ebay, with the seller stating it was the car they used for the mod ($40 including shipping). The seller included LEDs, and a 1 page diagram showing some wiring and thats about it (clearly states no tech support, and provides no further details).
I've only just begun, but i'm starting to see why this mod commands the $$$. It's a fair amount of work to get this built out. I have not seen a post on how to build this mod before, so i thought it might be worthwhile. 1st time trying this, so we will see how it goes...
First the disassembly:
The car needs to be pulled apart to perform all the wiring for LEDs, along with repainting the car the proper color (black)
- Remove the 4 Rivets on the car. 1 in the middle, 1 on the front bumper, and 2 on the back bumper.
- I started with 1/16 bit to start a hole, and then later going to a bit that was equal to the circumference.
