When the mood takes you . . .

studio lights

The garage is fast turning into a music studio, and my workshop being overtaken by amps, guitars and copies of song chords floating around the place.

Yep, that's me aged about 7

I’d already had the idea for some mood lighting in my workshop/mancave before the studio came about. Over the last 12 months I’ve purchased some original parts from a 1960 FB Holden on ebay – tail lights and the instrument cluster. They’re heavy and metallic, with real screws and light bulb sockets, and with real 50 year old dust as well.  We had one of them when I was a kid in the late 1960s – it was light green with a dark green highlight.

To bring these to life, I’ve basically shoved a 100 LED Christmas light string into the back of each of them. There was a fair bit of order put into that “shove” action, just to be clear.

The tail lights are fantastic, the dash not as bright as I would have liked, but it still looks good and the whole set up is great fun.
