    Okay. Took off half the red paint and put blue on. Coke on the left and Pepsi on the right. 0911171132.jpg

    Round the corners of the switches and they can be painted as cans of coke and pepsi.

    Got the signs on the machines. Also working on an interior light for the building.
    I like using the LED light strips, so I cut off a section and soldered on some leads. I will stick the strip to the bottom of the "rafter" on the ceiling of the building. I will run this 12v light at 9v because that is what all the lights will run off of. Softer light, not so harsh.

    Problem. Well, small problem. The building I was going to put in the front left corner with the soda machine inside won't fit there. So since I had the gas station kit and gas stations usually have soda machines in front... I notched the front of the building (bottom left in picture) and I will bury the machine so just a little shows out front. So it will look even better! Painted the parts and will begin assembly. Pictures (of course) will follow.

    Working on the outside ceiling. This gas station is one of those old type with a portico (or porch type covering) on the front (roof and ceiling). It will hang on the front. Now the interesting thing is that the portico has a ceiling with a fake light in it. Not anymore! Glued and soldered magnet wire leads (red +, green -) to a LED over the hole I cut out. I will drill a hole into the building and run the wires inside. Inside will be two more LEDs.
    Every building will be lit. Street lights too. I also have cars with all the lights.
