Vape conversion #4

I didn’t get any before shots or mod shots so this’ll be short.

The tail/switch section became the head of the light. All ingredients are stuffed in from the front, meaning the bezel retains everything in the head.

I cut a recess in for the switch. I wish it was neater but I needed space at the ends to connect the wires.

The base of the tube had a recess already manufactured into it. I bent up a spring to the right size and pressed it in.

All the holes at the end got fill with epoxy and glow powder.

Looks stunning Shocked I’ve got an old custom mod lying around, always wanted to do something with it, but lack of tools and skills is stopping me from doing it Tired

Praise the sun!

Not having ‘know how’ is not much of a problem. Just gotta get stuck in and learn on the way. Everyone starts somewhere. For example have you seen how much CRX practices his skills Wink BUT not having tools could be an issue Crying Having ‘some’ tools is a challenge but having ‘no tools’ is just plain wrong Flat Stare Evil

Awesome job pinkpanda. That’s a one of a kind light, I really like it. Thumbs Up
Wonder how hard it be to make one into a tail switch light.

Not hard when you have a lathe Wink though it would add extra length to the light.
