Making a tail light on the cilia of the LED tape ...
To modify the rear light on the Chevrolet Aveo decided to use the LED strip DWF-W . The advantage is that it is very flexible and has a good appearance, it is designed for 12-15 volts, especially for cars. It would be better to apply a DWF-R red ribbon so that the light through the red light filters is more saturated without a yellowish tint. But at that moment there was no red ribbon, which means we are making it out of white.
Wiring withdrawn on both sides of the tape, which is convenient.
Immediately connected to the power supply, checked - lit.
Approximately determine the diameter of the circle, taking into account the fact that the tape can be cut to a multiple of three diodes.
Every three LEDs, the ribbon is marked up with a white arrow, in these places you can safely cut it.
It turned out such a segment of 27 diodes
Further, in order to depict a circle, we pierce the silicone edge of the tape with a wire (in this case, a leg from a diode), and accordingly on the other side.
Bend and remove too much, it turned out such a circle. We believe in performance.
Since the attempts to disassemble the lamp were not crowned with success (it was glued around the perimeter, therefore), it was decided to use the hole for the lamp base.
Fold and thrust inside.
There, the circle is finished in the desired shape. We help him with a long screwdriver, straighten and adjust.
It is worth noting that the number of LEDs and the diameter of the circle very successfully coincided, it was not necessary to glue anything, the tape sat firmly and securely.
In the base of the lamp we drill a hole, pass the wire from the tape and seal it.
Then everything is simple, we take the blue wire- this is a "plus" from the dimensions, and we connect wires from our rings to it. MOST IMPORTANT DOES NOT MINE the POLARITY, IT WILL NOT BE A BURNING ELSE.
Isolate the shrink tube.
We check the performance in the collection.
Install on the machine, and enjoy the results of the work done.
Similarly, adjust the tape inside the headlight. You can outside, if space permits. Fortunately, the tape is not afraid of water and moisture. We get here such LED "cilia".
