Re: Taxi stand - camp signage

Playastewart, cool project! From a design standpoint you might consider: With only one sign, on the center camp ring, the chance of the sign or lighting being stolen is less than if the signs were scattered around the city. Nonetheless, plan for replacements. If they were scattered around the city,...

Re: Taxi stand - camp signage

Oh my! I never even saw these and I thought no one replied to me. Sorry. So what I decided to go with was a sort of sandwich-board design but the back I used flag pole holders (these are awesome) and wood dowels. Worked great in all that wind. Thanks for the suggestions, I think I will re-engineer i...

FUNDRAISER: Mobility Taxi

Hey all. Thought I'd post here for fundraising. Goldies Ponies offers mobility taxi pedi cab rides on playa. It started last year and there was a HUGE demand, more than I could cover or coordinate with just a message board and one pedi cab. You can read all about what I do here on the site below, pl...

Re: Handicap Vehicle for Playa Touring: The Babe

Taxi stand - camp signage

I'm trying to make a taxi stand for in front of Mobility Camp for my pedi taxi service. I've gone back and forth on designs and how to get it staked into the ground. Making a true taxi stand sign would be cool, but that would involve using some sort of fence post digging to get that way into the pla...

Re: tarp for shade attached to travel trailer?

I'm planning on doing something similar this year. I bought some 70% aluminet shade cloth and some d-rings to drill into my trailers roof/into the wood framing (don't just drill into sheet metal, it'll rip right out in the wind) anyhoo, then a leanto design down from there. I have an ez-up to drape ...

Re: Taxi fundraiser for Golides Ponies - Disability Services

Thought I'd update on my progress, I found a sidecar and mod'd it and reinforced it for a bigger bike, then reupholstered it. I took my parents out for a ride and it works! I still have to make the taxi sign up/taxi stand that will go in front of Mobility Camp. I'll try and find some advice on here ...

Re: Taxi fundraiser for Golides Ponies - Disability Services

If so please give us a lil love, I'm tryin...

Re: LED regulator needs for art car?

So here's the update. I wired up the voltage regulator and it didn't work. I then decided just to test to see if I can power from the battery to voltage regular to a test bulb - that worked. But when hooking it up to my LED's, nada. So ... I just wired it all straight to the 12v (along with a 12v ra...

LED regulator needs for art car?

Does anyone know if I need a fuse or regulator for this set up on my art car? Motorcycle battery to 5 LED strips (see diagram) I tested a few LED's here and there and some of them burned out from too much juice via just testing the strips with clips to a 6v lantern battery. Would suck to have an epi...
