    Talking Steering Wheel LED Mod : Half Done

    This has to be the most difficult job undertaken so far.

    These LED's are tiny and I mean extremely tiny.

    I did this in 3 hours as I took the ever so hard route of not having a magnifying glass so I could not see which way round the positive was supposed to go nor get a good look when soldering them.

    After much trial and error I got there in the end. Glad I stuck with it.

    So got the other side to do now which with a newly soon to be purchased magnifying glass I will have this done in 30 mins tops I think.

    Anyhow the LED project is coming along nicely albeit slowly and lengthy.

    I feel all proud of myself tonight

    P.S I will vacum the car out at the weekend and hopefully Sunday the Clocks will be blue too if I can get them out and dismantle them. Just the head unit after that. Im not looking forward to that though. More of them pesky tiny LED's.
