Refurb - Repair - Remake - Replace
Designer and maker of parts for your perfect project.
Mk2 Dome Light Kit, designed, developed and 3D printed by Tom's Refurbishments.
Included in each kit are the parts as follows:
2 X 3D Resin Printed Dome Light Rings
2 X 3D Resin Printed threaded base plates
2 X E10 lamp fittings with approximately 30cm cable
2 X E10 bulbs rated 12v 5w
2 X ping-pong balls (orange)
4 X M3 bolts at 20mm long
4 X M3 washers
4 X M3 hex nuts
To fit these to the dome section of your project, you will need to drill a 10mm hole into the dome section as the centre of the light fitting, for the E10 holder to fit through, with 2 3mm holes either side. The threaded base plates are designed with the "TR" logo to be on the top surface and can act as templates to drill out the holes required. Once finished, these will give the authentic early 60's "Invasion Of Earth" feel or a hint of "An Adventure In Space And Time" to your finished build whilst also being easy to unscrew from the threaded base to change bulbs when required.
To assemble this kit, you will need a craft knife or Stanley blade to cut a hole into each ping-pong ball for the E10 bulb to fit inside them. Also required is some epoxy resin and the paint colour of your choice to paint the Dome Light Rings before fitting the cut ping-pong balls into place with the epoxy resin. It is also advised to use a very small amount of epoxy resin on the outer surface of the prewired E10 fittings when assembling them into the threaded base plates so as to fully secure them.
Toms refurbishment is one if not the best business that can provide you with recreated "prop" parts to a outstanding degree and would definitely recommend him as his speed in posting and the finish quality of the product is handled with such care. Tom himself is also very kind and encouraging and a pleasure to talk to. Thanks to Tom I have been able to start my dream of having my own personal "army" which would not be possible without parts provided by Tom.

I contacted Tom back in 2019 about making some improvements to my project so that I could take him to events and Comic Cons. Tom saw this as a challenge and found solutions which created a beautiful, reliable machine that works wonderfully and allowed me to attend the Queen's Jubilee Parade without any technical issues. I fully recommend Tom's Refurbishments and I intend to commission my other project with Tom in the near future.
