Besides photography I have taken a slight interest in restoring traffic lights. I already restored one which was really simple. It was in really good condition, just needed some paint. In the background, you can see it on the wall mounted. Anyways with this one I decided to do something different and make it racing themed. So I got a real racing wheel and I did end up mounting a racing slick on the wheel but I haven't taken picture of it yet with it on. Still have some finishing touches to do before I take final pictures. The reason why I wanted to make it on a pedestal is to make it somewhat mobile so I can bring it in and out of the garage and use it at night haha. This one was in really tough shape, missing lots of parts. Some parts I had to manufacture my self, so its not 100% perfect, but its pretty good. It still needs to be painted and what not. But I couldn't wait, I just had to share the pictures! So it uses real actual LED inserts that were used, so they are INCREDIBLY bright. The traffic light it self is from 60s as far as I know, I believe this particular model was used in one of the cities around new england/northeast. The image below is not from this particular light but its basically what it looks like on the inside of this one. The left circuit board is a aftermarket board you can buy to makes the light function like a regular traffic light. You can make it run through the typical red/yellow/green sequence and even adjust the timer. You can even set it up to flash yellow or red and do wig wags. So its pretty neat. Only $50. The wheel I made look like it was mounted on a race car using real racing studs and lug nuts. It was a pretty fun project! Right now I'm waiting for the weather to warm up so I can take it all apart and put the finishing touches on it. I haven't decided what color I'm going to paint it yet, I'm thinking about either keeping it grey like how it kind of is right now or paint it vintage dark green like my other one.
