    Overly dark, busy background. Something is in the foreground, needs a tighter crop/


    Nice suv though

    Yeah, it's in my barn-I just finished adding the lights. What do you think?

    Here are the switches-I added a power switch for the car itself, because once the battery is plugged in, the pedal is live and I didn't like that in case the girls want to play around in it.
    Red one is for the vehicle power, and the green one is for the lights:

    Here's the wiring under the hood:

    That's pretty cool man. I bet your girls love it. How long are the batteries lasting on Power Wheels nowadays?

    this should be about art attempts... i don't see any artistic aspects of the last two shots, i think they would be better off on a technical site, no offense. as for the first one, it is way to dark and busy as the others have mentioned...

    off topic. why a pink escalade?

    Yeah, they love that they both can fit in it at the same time, and it has a working FM radio. The battery lasts a pretty long while. I've still got the 2.5 MPH lockout screw in place until my daughter gets better coordinated, but we played for about 40 minutes, and it still had plenty of juice. I have a second battery that I'm going to place in parallel with the main in order to double the power and the charge time. I'm also going to put a voltage divider in the circuit so that we don't need to put 4 C batteries in the radio in the dash, but will, instead, run it on 6 volts of the main battery circuit power...

    Notice the first warning, which I ignored on the first day and voided the 1-year warranty:

    Sorry, man.. Sometimes I lose my mind and think of you guys as friends that I just want to show my life to.... Maybe I overdo it.

    I just thought the first picture was awesome in that it could actually be mistaken for the real thing in a garage if you just looked quick..... I was surprised at how the picture came out, but I love it.

    Thanks-great to get nice comments.. It's just a thing I have that the car should have lights for visibility, and the hi-vis LED's are awesome and don't drain much battery power at all.. I also considered the main power switch a safety issue and had to do that one. This should be a no-brainer at the factory, as it only cost me about $7 in parts.
