About: Roof light & Fog light kit for R/C models.
This is the most simple parts to build and 3d printed used for ground Radio Control models lighting kits on car, trucks especially 4x4 off-roader to have brackets to install popularly used LED strip style lightings. This 3d printing kit provides two LED brackets which are the roof light which is to be installed on top of flat roof top and the foglight which primarily for the front part of the model.
The roof light kit have two small screw type mounting to designed to mount on flat surface where you have to manually drilled some holes on both on the part itself and the mounting surface. The parts slightly longer than the fog light kit which can accommodate longer LED strips. User need to manually drill two small holes on the most outer side of the LED bracket to allow two wires (+ | -) to route the wiring through the back of the brackets and into the LED strips as shown in the attached gallery section. Below are the specifications.
Roof light specification & requirements:
- Part length: 112mm
- Part height: 15mm
- Mounting style: Flat surface + screw-in
- Mounting stance width (screw hole to hole screw): 70mm
- LED SMD type max size fitting: LED SMD 5050
- LED strip width: 102mm
- LED strip height: 10mm
- LED strip thickness: 2mm
The fog light kit have is shorter in length to accommodate short length LED strip designed to mount the front part of the car/trucks. Unlike the roof light kit the fog light have zip tie mounting instead of screws to allow user to mount to any part of the surface especially tubular structure, bumpers or frame like surface which more likely found on front part of the model. Thus allow flexibility to tilt the fog light up and down. User need to manually drill two small holes on the most outer side of the LED bracket to allow two wires (+ | -) to route the wiring through the back of the brackets and into the LED strips as shown in the attached gallery section. Below are the specifications.
Complete assembly parts:
Just 3D print according to your prefered printing resolution and material of your choices. All you need to do after that is just to drill some holes for the screws to mount iy or zip-ties and the holes for the LED wiring to go at the back through the LED mounting brackets.

* Note that all LED strips are 100% waterproof even if its labeled marketed as Non-Waterproof or non-layer coated ones because i've already tested naked LED strip to bash in the rains and pools of water from previous project. So don't worry much about water issues.
