    Lights

    I decided to add headlights and tail lights so I can drive at night. This may be the single best improvement that I made to the Telly.

    This was great until the first time that I took off the body and forgot about the wires and pulled out the connectors. I could have just replaced the connector, but I know that I would forget and rip it out again.

    I cut out some metal contacts from a cookie tin and glued them to the rear body mount and to the inside of the body. Now I don't have to worry anymore. When the body is on, the lights are connected.
