Front End wall art

Made this with some spare parts I had laying around. Have a few more things I want to add but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Very very cool! Great job :-)

Had the same idea, but also used the front panels and the light guards for 3D effect. Ever consider adding low wattage 7 inch bulbs on a dimmer for fun? I'm toying with the idea :-)

Yes as soon as I finished I knew I had to add lights so i've been browsing around for different ways to do it. Just trying to think of the best way to hide the wires.

Do you happen to have any picture of yours?

I'll take some the next time I get back down to my garages.

I was thinking of cutting out the recesses in the wall necessary and mounting in remodel 6" cans. The extra inch is gained, in my case, from the added depth of the front panels. From then on, it's just a matter of using halogens under factory looking 7" lenses.
