    Aye folks - we now have headlights.

    The decoder has been programmed so I can scroll through the headlight codes by tapping the F0 (lights) button on the handset.

    For the lighting looms I made up two PCB boards to hold the resistors and sub-miniature plugs. They are stuck to the false roof with double sided foam tape - the type used to mount car rear view mirrors to the windsrceen.

    Lighting sockets from Decoder PCB. Met 94.jpg

    Lighting sockets connected. Met 94a.jpg

    Speaker connections - the socket is from the decoder and the plug from the speaker. I always wire up my decoder plug and socket connections like this i.e. decoder wires have the sockets to prevent any accidental shorting and damage to the decoder. Met 95.jpg

    And finally the louvres - these are cast resin and require cleaning up. I have painted them grey to reveal any small air bubbles from the casting process which require filling - and there are a handful.
