Here are the original Eagle CAD drawings. Note that I created these using the Lite version of Eagle, which limits you to 4" long board. I needed 8" long boards for the LED light bars, so I modified the light bar artwork in photoshop to create an 8" long board. I have included it in PDF format.

Don't even bother looking at these files unless you know how to make printed circuit boards. Obviously, building this thing will take some training in electronics, a decent amount of equipment, etc. etc. Also note that the design has been optimized for 11V, but it should run just as well at 12V. It will not run on anything lower than 10V.

I don't have all of my assembly pictures sorted and edited yet, but will soon.....
