LED cilia

To create LED cilia we need a few things:

-courage;
-pair weekend;
- LED tape DWF-W piece in 1 meter;
-industrial dryer;
- cyanocrylic glue;
- a dozen toothpicks;
-20 cm wire, soldering iron, electrical tape;

Deciding to disassemble the headlights initially is very difficult. Suddenly something break !? It will fog up!?! And other vague doubts ... Believe me, there is nothing difficult in dismantling headlights. The main tool is an industrial dryer for heating the sealant on which the glass is planted. And it is desirable to have a number of assistant. In some cases, helps the kettle with boiling water, which we pour the perimeter of the glass, thereby warming the sealant. After the sealant warms up, use several screwdrivers to unclip the latches, and gradually begin to pull on the glass. In those places where there is a gap insert toothpicks. They do not allow the sealant to retract the glass into place. Gradually, walking along the contour of the glass, we blow a hairdryer into the gap that has formed. When heated, the sealant "releases" the glass. So the glass is removed, half done. We make inspection of the insides of the headlights so that dirt does not get on the internal reflectors. Rubbing and touching the mirror surfaces of the reflector is not recommended, since spraying can be damaged.

Next, cut 1 meter of tape into two equal parts. On the upper visor plastic insert glue tape. Clay need a quality (not 2 UAH., Which is sold at cash desks in supermarkets), and purchased in stores specializing in auto chemistry. Special attention is paid to this moment, since this tape is coated with such a silicone compound that almost no other adhesive takes it. I do not really want to see a piece of tape that has fallen off in a closed headlamp a couple of days after installation. When the tape is glued, we connect the wires to the circuit of dimensions, observing the polarity, and isolate it with tape. We check the performance.

If everything is in order, we collect the headlights, pre-heating the sealant remaining on the glass and on the headlight body with a hairdryer. Assembly is much faster disassembly. As a result, we get the following ...
