Hi everyone. This project is not at all dangerous, and is designed only to ease your effort if you are tailing someone in a car. Often if you are staking someone out, you want to be able to find their car in a line of traffic. This little device will help you tremendously.
- 1 10mm Green Huge-ass LED Diag: d1 Radio Shack # 276-215
- 1 Pack/5 180 Ohm resistors Diag: r1 RS# 271-1110
- 1 Pk/5 9v battery connectors Diag: b1 RS# I forget
- 1 9v battery (the reactangle)
Wire these up with the following schematic:
Simple enuff (I *HOPE* you followed that). You COULD add a switch, I guess, but if you just unhook the battery when it’s not on, that’s fine. Put this in a nice small package, and add a couple magnets to the case (or to the side of the 9v, if you don’t make a box for it) so it’ll stick to the car. When you need to tail someone, just connect the battery and stick it to the side of their car (somewhere that they won’t find it, but you can see it), with the LED angled so it’s bright when you look from your car. Now, if you lose the person at night in a pack of cars, just look until you see the one with the green dot near the back. You can see when they turn, too. This is good as now you can follow from a car or two back, and not be as suspicious.
NOTE: This will work on one 9v battery for like 3 days straight.
