Pimp My Wheelchair Project

Growing up in a wheelchair you begin to notice people staring just because you are a young person in a chair, so I began to modify my chair to give them a real reason to stare.

The Underglow Kit

The first thing added to the chair was the underglow kit, which was kindly sent by ICELED. It is a scaled down version of their UFO Kit for cars, which uses over 2million colours, reacts to sound & I can edit the colour scheme how ever I want. All the wiring is hidden in 2 boxes which also have light in to make the logos on the covers glow. Signs Experts kinda made the covers for these boxes.

NOS Purge System

The NOS Purge System was fitted by Powerhouse Automotive Ltd after I asked if they sold fake NOS canisters. Instead he offered to fit a working kit that would shoot bursts of NOS out either side. The kit consists of a Wizards Of NOS Bottle and a Pulsoid X10 solenoid wired to a rocket switch & button.

The Solar Panel

To help keep the batteries healthy I decided to fit a solar panel and The Solar Centre offered to send me a 80watt 12v panel. This may not be enought to fully charge the batteries, but it does help them last longer.

The Wheels

Better Mobility offered to send me a set of 2nd hand wheels & tyres which I then took to John Bee LTD who then sprayed them pure white and then applied OZ Racing stickers.
