I found an old Skateboard. I removed all the trucks & wheels. Fortunately, the design was just sticker so it was easy for me to peel it off to have the wood finish then I proceeded to drawing my design on the wood surface...

Step 2: Painting & Detailing

I started painting my drawing using one color at a time. I started with red. I also placed white paint as a primer to some parts to make it thicker and make the color stand out more. The wood tends to just absorb the color so I would suggest putting white primer first. I used acrylic paints. :)

Step 3: Wiring & Bulb Installation

Sorry I don't know what it's called but if you can see that white thing in the picture, its the one that holds the bulbs. I looked for one that would best fit the T shaped tube that I bought. The black part is the one that holds the light (I dont know what its called too sorry). So now its just a matter of simple wiring (series) so that all the bulbs will light up with one switch.

And its ready.. :) Just make sure to glue all the parts so it wont move and also to make sure the wires don'n touch each other so it wont burn! :)

Thanks for viewing. Sorry if its not as complete or detailed. Thanks again!
