Taking it from another perspective, think of lamps this way:

When a dark sucker has absorbed its maximum of dark it is "extinguished" or for lack of a better term, it begins to expel darkness.

To better prevent sucking the darkness from the cockpit, I've designed a less sucking glare guard....


What really sucks is now I need to design and manufacture tooling to do the bending....

Big progress report to follow in next couple days.
Things are developing nicely.
It will be well worth the wait- believe me.


Divide and exploit. Works every time.

interested yes I am!

I'll keep checking this thread. I've installed a HID headlamp but your kit seems to be most promising.

So I have boxes of parts...
Cleaning up the waterjet parts...
Soldering resisters and LED's on custom circuit boards...

I was in today (saturday) deburring, chamfering holes, reaming, scotchbrite'ing parts. Will do it again on sunday.
I'm trying to get these done asap. Lottsa work for 1 guy already doing 12 hour days...
My evenings during the week are for stuffing circuit boards and soldering.

Bottom line...they're getting done.
I have more work prepping the parts for anodizing and have yet to make the bending jig for the scatter guard but I assure you it wont be long now.
Work has been pretty stressful and sometimes I get home and pass out on the couch....
Wish I had more time to devout to this project....gotta satisfy my fellow inmates!

I was one of the first adopters of 3d rapid prototyping. Before that I was a tool and die maker in aerospace. The last 20 years I've embraced cad and for the last 15, 3d cad. (SolidWorks)

Because of the variety of unique and diverse creations demanded by the “Biz”, I'm familiar with an broad array of materials and associated methods of manufacture. As an example, I designed the steel structures and integration of hydraulics for the big stone lifting blocks and walkways in the Bat Cave sequence of “The Dark Knight Rises”. I also headed the design and fabrication of the acrylic bat suit cabinet that elevated out of the floor of one of those blocks-on an elevator I designed.


Be thankful for being busy. I'm sure you are. You have a cool job and cool skills. Lot of us are jealous. Take care of business first. This Adventure Rider stuff is all icing. So take your time and the project will get done when it gets done.

Now . . . will it be done by Tuesday?

You guys make me laugh...for which i am most grateful...and motivates me to see this through.
So i sent the files off for the scatter guard bending jig over a week ago and finally today i get a response. They'll call in the morning with a quote to cut the steel parts. i already have the springs and hardware so when i get ithe watersawed pieces i can do the machining and the bender will be done. Ive been in every saturday and sundays deburring and cleaning up parts getting them prepped for anodizing...over 300 pieces of aluminum for 50 kits. add to that the assembly of the circuit boards....
did i mention im working 12 hour days on my real job???
