Default L.E.D. Cheese wedges

Thought I would do just what the title states. First I got a set of black wedges for experimenting on and think I am just going to keep them. Like them better than the chrome.

First thing I did was a search on this site and found a couple of folks that had already did it. I ordered the LEDs from super bright led.
5mm with the holder and also a metal style holder. Did not like the metal ones after I got them so I did not used them.
Step 1 remove wedges.

Step 2 use 17/64 drill bit and drill out the dimples for mounting the LEDS

Step 3 test your LED before installing.

step 4 I put the plastic holders on the LEDs and an pushed into the cheese wedge

Step 5 the bird's nest as my wife called. Start trimming and soldering.

Step 6 check for operation after doing a couple. I would not wait to check them at the.. don't ask me how I learned that.

Step 7 I used liquid tape and covered all the joints.

The last pic is the finished one. Now just have to mount and wire into my controller.

Took about 40 dollars in parts and about 3 hours per wedge.

Looks great , cant wait to see them mounted up . On a side note , are the black and chrome wedges the same size ? It looks in some instances as if the centers are smaller on the chrome version .... Just wondering if anyone knows for sure .
