Default 6 volt christmas lights

I lost my diagram to convert the strings of llights to 6 volts. Can some one repost it? I forget how many bulbs between each feed wire. Thanks. Jon

I don't have the diagram but I can tell you what I did. I bought mini led lights that draw almost no current. I then with a 12-110 adapter that plugs into my battery powered jump starter plugged the lights into that. Because the led light draw so little current it will run 200 lights for over 3 hours on the battery pack. More than enough for our annual holiday parades. I just put the pack into the rumble seat.

I have lights hooked up with a inverter. I just want to make some up to run directly off the battery in the car. There was a picture diagram showing this, conversion of 110 to 6 volts.
