    Got 10 more lights wired in...(y)

    Doesnt sound like a lot but ya have to be a contortionist to get inside these cabinets to do any wiring...:(:mad:.

    Here are the 10 lights I wired today in one cabinet....:rolleyes::D

    [​IMG]

    The velcro strips are to keep the wires up against the layout so they dont get snagged by the drawers that go back in here...o_O

    Wires dressed an up out of the way of the drawers....:)

    Here is the work space.

    Well, done George, well done.

    I wish I was that far along.

    Wireus Repairus II coming along nicely.

    I do like that passenger train but with those windows painted out having lights inside wouldn't accomplish much. Any old way.

    Looking good.

    Hawhawhaw. I own a N Sclae HW observation car. I purchased while attending a swap meet. Buying it off a dirty old man. :confused::whistle: It wasn't until I took the roof off of it I discovered the adult party going on in it. Wowah, what's going on here? :eek::oops: I didn't do anything with those windows but you'd have to know what you are looking at before you can see it. :D

    Same can be said of a Hotel I purchased from the same guy. When a light goes on in a hotel room. I had to do a double take. :unsure: What the hell. :rolleyes: Automated adults doing what some adults do. :censored: :sick::sick:

    And why not?(y):LOL:

    Going fishing today !

    Going to cut holes in the one side of the end cabinets. Got my 1/16" heat shrink tubing. Will extend the LED leads on the street lights in the corners. Will have to 'fish' all the wires out of the abyss in those back corners.

    This will be fun............................ N O T !! :eek::(

    Oh yea ! I cant sit crossed legged in the aisle because of my bad knees and back. Cant really kneel either. Sitting with my legs straight out down the aisle....leaning in...and my upper torso somehow contorted inside the cabinets is not a pretty picture.

    Slipping a 'hook' in the holes...moving it around trying to snag wires...pulling it out and finding the 'hook' is empty reminds me of real fishing...LOL

    Maybe you should watch a few infomercials for a good bait to snag those wires? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::D

    And when you find out you fished out the wrong wires? Yeah, I know I've done that before.

    You'll make it George. Determination and ingenuity can move mountains.

    Hang in there.
