Tricked Out The Journey

We'll it took about 8 weeks but I finally completed building 2 infinity lights and installed them in the DP. I had a couple of oak frames and too much time on my hands. Also installed LED back lighting throughout the coach. The white LED's in the center of each light and the strips between the lights are on remote dimmers. There's a total of 340 RGB LED's and over 1000 resistors. Each light is capable of thousands of colors variations and numerous fade and transition effects. Can't wait to see what the reactions are from fellow campers. First camping trip on the 20th and then off to the Grand Banks before heading to Asia on business. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

WOW! I'm impressed.

How big a box do you have to put on the roof to contain the LED stack, and how did you waterproof it?

The box is only 3" thick. It just appears to go thru the roof. Optical Illusion.... pretty neat huh?

There seems to be a brass pole missing from the center of the living area. LOL. Seriously, you did a great job. It looks amazing.

Thanks everyone. You're right when you set these lights to flashing and color changing it's pretty wild. What's really nice is when you dim them way down and find a nice soft color. It's really relaxing. I have a couple of other projects in the works I'll share with you also.
