Custom Sun Visor LED

So i'm on a quest to put LED's in everything i can in my car and i didnt see any write ups on the sunvisor lights so i thought i'd make one my self.
Whats needed:
4 LED Bulbs
4 LED Resistors
Circuit Board
Hot Glue
some Solder

First you must cut the Bulbs down a bit so that they fit into space allowed in the visor. you can sand them or cut with a razor blade. After cutting them you must put some sort of varnish on them to bring it back to the transparent tone it previously had.
Cut a piece of circuit board to about the size of the stock bulb and hot glue the bulbs in place in the center of it.

After the glue had dried Solder the resistor onto the positive lead to the LED and run the rest of the resitor wire to the end of the circuit board and wrap it around, do the same for the negative side.

Once this step is completed you must put hot glue around all exposed wire except for the ends, Which are going to be used to complete the circuit.

Now you have your self a set of LED bulbs! Heres the final product!

Haha, same here with the gauges, I ordered the white ones, and the gauges are blue now. I put them in my temp controls too.


I have a question though, im not a soldering/resistors/circuit board kinda guy lol, how much would you charge to make me a set of those for my visors? (set of 4)
