homemade electric vest

Girl friend and I made an electric vest per some on line instructions. Works great and cost about 35 bucks with hook ups and have enough wire left over to make a couple more. Any interest in it? If so I'll post a few pics and try to give ya the high points.

http://www.mototour.us/technical/electricclothes.htm http://www.shadowriders.org/faq/electricvests.html http://www.bulkwire.com/teflon_coated_stranded_wire.asp Secret is to weave about 30 feet of 30 gauge stranded wire thru a vest. We bought a couple yards of a black quilted material from Walmart and used an old t shirt minus sleaves for a pattern. open sides with velcro straps on sides. Bought a couple connector ends from Widder (www.widder.com) for a 1.50 each. With a little solder, heat shrink tubing, and a inline lamp switch from local hardware store we were set. Ill try to post a couple pics of the final product later.
