"It's not easy being green"... Kermit
Dan (dmathieu) may take interest in this.Just took the gearbox apart on this bad boy for a customer and got her running again! The gear pressed onto the output shaft fell off and was laying loose in the little gear case. Runs like a greyhound and quiet like a church! He wants to upgrade to an LED beacon in green, any offers on this one? (magnetic mount and not perfect) PM me...
And Dietz never made domes in anything but clear, red, amber, and blue, so if you wanted split color or a non-stock color, that is exactly how they would have done it. Nice job!Here's a home-made green Dietz dome on a 211. I painted a clear dome that was melted on one side, which resulted in a crack all the way across the top. Basically trash, but one half of it still looks good. I used Duplicolor metalcast and applied the paint to the inside. View attachment 153819 The top came out perfect, but I had to wet-sand the sides to remove the orange-peel, which lightened up the color a little more than I would have liked. Next time I will put on more coats of paint, knowing I will have to sand it down to get it smooth and perfectly transparent.
That's a lot of green!Playing around with the green lights today. Should've done this a month ago for St Paddy's Day.
