DBert, it is hard to explain it in english, but I will try )

I had made some patterns (or stancils), painted plastic covers in white, then stuck the patterns down and put some black and gray paint on it. To tell the truth, it was a hard, exhausting work, that took me a whole day, still it worth it.

That is the main aim of our expeditions - find and bury warriors of our country, that were killed during WW2. They are still lying in the deep forests unburied, despite the fact, that the war ended 67 years ago...

DM35,
Great job on the Quad. Looked like an exciting trip with a noble purpose. I flew helicopters in the Air Force and had the privilege of helping recover some WW II remains in Thailand. I'm sure the families and fellow solders appreciate your efforts. I like the round magazines and other artifacts in the video. Was that a land mine I saw? Did you use old battle plans to decide where to start? Thanks again for posting.

I would like to know if you can send me all details on your tail lights, maybe a detailed schematic? are they dual purpose, running and break lights? I would love to do this for mine.

Action, do you have some extra info about you work in Thailand? It is interesting for me.

You are right, it was "T Mi 35" anti-tank mine in the video



Yes, we use all information we can, including battle plans and military reports. Sometimes even local rumors help us in our work (In that way at the bottom of the lake we found the plane crashed in 1942 , and finaly after 3 year of underwater searches found the body of the pilot)
















SportsmanJohn500, it was my first experience in LED electrics, but still, I will try to show you all the details, but a bit later.

Yes, they are dual purpose, including turn signals, as you can see in the video below your post.

WilliamBos Yes, I made them. I forgot to say, that they are submersible :
