Trying to come up with a way to have a small fog machine in a vehicle. A couple of issues.

First is powering a 110v unit in a vehicle but i assume i can do that with an inverter.

second is how to rerout the fog. What I am trying to do is put a mask/statue on my vehicle... with a mouth opening. i have to mount the fog unit inside vehicle. is there a way to rerout the fog via a tube or something to the opening in the mask/statue?

Anything else I should be aware of? its going to be mounted on the roof of my vehicle with the fog unit inside...

thanks kevin

Well, just some irrigation pipe can re-route the fog, but I'ld be a bit concerned with some fog either cooling and running back down into the car, or getting blown back in as the car drives.

As for the power, there are converters that plug into a lighter you can buy fairly cheap.

more info

Ok let me explain what i am doing. I have an ice cream truck.. and on the roof is a small round speaker that kind of looks like a mini bullhorn. I wanted to put this hard foam mask:

over that and have fog and red eyes lighting this up as i drive. I have room in the truck above drivers head which is boxed out from the factory for things like wiper motor, lights, etc. Hard to explain but there is an access panel to this boxed area. I thought i could use a skull fogger or something this:

and take the fog machine and lights and if I could rerout the fog output through a tube through the roof into the mouth or head of this mask... it would look cool. Problem is I dont know if the fog output accepts a tube or something can be made.

Maybe someone else has ideas/parts that would work better?

The lights would look good, but i think you will have troubles seeing the fog when your driving. If it does show up, it may just look like smoke flying out of his mouth and going straight back. on a windy day your fog goes all over, and does not stay around for long. If your dooing 25-35 MPH on a side street, i dont think you will see much fog. you may also have a problem withthe fog being pushed back into the mask and not coming out at all.

Now, if your standing still, That would look great..

that is just my opinion though.

yea for the most part i stand still. I park at shows and stuff so i thought it would look cool but as far as parts wise.. does anyone know of a fog unit that I can attach some sort of hose to and have it shoot out the mouth or ears? I could get that skull head but dont even need the head...just a good unit but not too powerful.

Also wanted to get glowing green eyes if someone could help me on that ..

or should i just get the head?
thank you

I have that EXACT skull fogger... It's been the BEST fogger I've ever owned. The 1000 watt one died after 10 uses, the 400 watt one died after a year... the "ground" fogger (if you could call it that), died after 3 years.... but that skull fogger has been working nonstop awesome for the last 8 years!!!
