Do blinky fire stations count? 🤪

When I first got my first LifeLites kit I had them in the old Truck 1, a Pierce tiller. I can't seem to find the video now but here's a super dark pic

And here's the video of them in Squad 3 again. I'll probably move them to the 7-wide Spartan tiller when it's done since it'll have more space inside for them.

I’ve got no space lol! I’d have to sacrifice a functional compartment or two to make it happen.... unless, I scale up my rigs haha👀

With the LifeLites eLite Junior kit you get 4 LEDs from a battery pack the size of a 2x4 brick 👀

True, but with the amount of lights I need, I’m gonna need a lot of 2x4s just to light up the front 😂

Well yeah, but with 2 LEDs you can do the light bar which would look awesome by itself.

You know me.. if I do something, I will most definitely go all out 😂 So every light will be lit up 🥶

In that case you’ll have to give up the cab space and put a lot less lights on the rig then usual 😂 just fill up the cab with the junior kits and get some wire extensions. The full size eLite is kinda huge IMO it’s better to just use a bunch of juniors

We’ll see I guess haha! My next thing is detailing the cabs, so I’m not sure how space I will have left over 🙃

You could reach out to Rob at Brickstuff, he was able to help me design a space sensitive headlight solution for Truck 124.

I don’t like using brands that say they are for LEGO, I find they are quite overpriced, the battery packs and wire connections are far too big for all the lights.

Lmao plus cost.... costs almost the same as the truck to put LEDs in.

Tbh it kind of annoys me when people ask just because SO many ask. And don’t check descriptions when it’s written right there Lol. I get them from Evans designs takes some extra technical ability but overall they are the best I’ve seen so far.
