This is my first build, and my first Power Wheel!

I'd like to keep track of the progress, and hopefully help any other newbs that are attempting to mod this same Power Wheel (PW).
I plan to do the following to this little beast:
  • 6v to 12v power conversion
  • LED headlights
  • LED (static) taillights
  • Paint job
  • Custom truck parts (bars, decals, etc)
Nothing extreme, but I think it'll be a good starter project.

I found this one on the side of the road, trash day, in November. It doesn't work as is, battery seems to charge to 50% but I don't have a reliable charger yet. Testing with a multimeter, the foot pedal switch is good, but the forward/reverse switch isn't.

That is where I started, I took apart the switch:

This thing is supposed to have a spring or two in it, right?
The dirt you see in that pic is what is left of the springs, I think they took it swimming in salt water!
