LED Cilia

To create LED cilia, we need a few things:

- pair of days off;
-LED ribbon DWF-W piece in 1 meter;
-industrial dryer;
-Cyronocrystalline glue;
-tens of toothpicks;
-20 cm of wire, soldering iron, electrical tape;

Deciding on the disassembly of the headlights is initially very difficult. Suddenly I'll break something !? Will fog up!?! And other vague doubts ... Believe me, in the dismantling of headlights there is nothing complicated. The main tool is an industrial dryer, for heating the sealant, on which glass is planted. And it is advisable to have an assistant nearby. In some cases, a kettle with boiling water is used to water the perimeter of the glass, thereby warming up the sealant. After the sealant is warmed up, use a few screwdrivers to unclench the latches, and gradually start pulling the glass. In those places where there is a gap insert toothpicks. They do not allow the sealant to draw glass into its place. Gradually, walking on the contour of the glass, blow the blow dryer into the gap. When heated, the sealant "releases" the glass. So the glass is removed, half the work is done. We inspect the interior of the headlight so that dirt does not get on the internal reflectors. Rubbing and touching the mirror surfaces of the reflector is not recommended, as the spraying can be damaged.

Next, cut 1 meter of tape into two equal parts. On the upper visor of the plastic insert glue tape. Glue needs a high-quality (not for 2 UAH, which is sold at cash desks in supermarkets), but purchased in shops specializing in auto chemical goods. This moment is given special attention, since this tape is covered with such a silicone compound that any other glue does not practically "take" it. Do not really want to see the missing piece of tape in a closed headlight a couple of days after installation. When the tape is glued, connect the wires to the chain of dimensions observing the polarity, and isolate the tape. We check the working capacity.

If everything is in order, we collect headlights, preheating the sealant remaining on the glass and on the headlamp housing with a hair dryer. Assembly is much faster disassembly. The result is the following ...
