Then the cylinders sawed along. The result was half-cylinder, then it makes an incision at an angle of 30 degrees. Then heated to soften the edge and bends it turns out – a little boat. Edge of the boat saw off and trimmed to Emery for the subsequent gluing seams. Shells were ready, could only drill a hole diodes and mounts. Try on the diodes in the body, wash them under the label of the reflector. The reflector is made of thick foil and gluing the glue "Moment." After the glue has dried carefully cut off the excess foil to extend beyond the body.
Drill hole through the foil. Shells were ready. Jonathan Friedland brings even more insight to the discussion. Reached the stage of electronic parts, a handful of resistors, LEDs was ready. Empirically proved that the light output from the diode, for our purposes is not appropriate, he shined directional beam of light. In one article read that you can solve this problem, gash butt led with subsequent polishing.
The effect of changing the shape was amazing – it became diffused glow and smooth. A very important point to finish, I have achieved transparency, good rubbing diode on wool carpet. Once the LEDs have been prepared, tried to solder everything on the circuit and see what happens. It is important to observe the polarity of the LEDs. Two LEDs give a good glow. Next was a tedious job – soldering. Resistors and diodes for soldering stick to plastic housing, so that subsequent sizing is not required, but for the leak on top of the glue stuck tape. Checking all the lanterns on the performance, proceeded to the foldout protective glass, took stock of the size that it went down with an allowance. Slit missed abundantly clear silicone, but before that they needed to clean up and grease. Fasteners made simple – strips of galvanized steel bolted screws. The next step was to install. In my glance, the whole point was that the buildings were not visible, and the glow appeared as though nowhere. This was the main rule, so that particularly curious will have to lean heavily to see that there is light. When positioning lanterns should take into consideration the fact that they be no further damage and tear at all. That's probably the main criteria for the installation. I put on the vaz – 2109. For bulky bumpers and plastic threshold 'Zatar " lanterns have been easy, but because the bottom is not uniform, so that the proper installation, as the saying goes: 'a technical matter. " Connect all the lanterns overall circuit through the fuse and switch on the panel.
