*the el wire i used in this tutorial is 2 meters and specially made for cars , it need 12v from the car lighter .

* i used 2′ 9v batteries connected in series = 16v to light this , it should be ok.

it should be fine if you used shorter wire or broader , it depends on your design .

*the batteries i used was received from the electronics build night by jameco .

step 2: design

this mod should be permanent , so you should be sure about the design.

first you should imagine a design and draw it on a paper or do like me and just start with duct tape .

put the duct at the angles and try to tension it to see how it will look.

note: the double face tape i used was a complete fail and pain , so i used normal duct tap .

step 3: test and redesign

after building your design prototype with duct tape , light it up to see how it really looks.

if you like it , start gluing with glue gun under the same places you put the duct tape and the glue the straight lines .

in my case i needed more enhancement to the design .

step 4: turn on and enjoy your ride 😉

this mod was made at cairo hackerspace.
