After yesterdays post about the completion of the afterburner fabrication, I started playing around with the LEDs and how I could position them. I never really liked the look of exposed LEDs but I wasn’t sure how much light would come out if they were tucked away. I guess the only way you find out is to give it a try 🙂
I pulled out the speaker enclosure and wrapped the LED strip around the cylinder area where the speaker attaches. This hides the LEDs unless you are looking into the afterburner on an extreme angle. I taped the strip in-place, popped it back into the turkey feathers and the video shows the result.
I really like how the lighting looked using this technique, so I think we have a keeper and I’ll now move onto another item of the TODO list!
