Hey.You didnĀ“t really thought that this was te whole story, did you?
StickinĀ“ a pissy badge is not really something i would call a mod
As mentioned, i purchased the glove box last year to have it in stock, for potentially repairs.
Because i had some free time between 21.12/06.01 i decided to dissamble the whole unit for reinforcing purposes, to avoid futurity damages.
While doing this, i decided to remove a further weak point :The lighting.
The OEM lamp was removed, and the originated hole was closed by a piece of tin, which is used now as a micro switch carrier (found one at our inc., originally used for fire protection flaps)
An actuator also had to be installed:
Here we go:
24 holes for 24 LEDĀ“s (white,5mm,10k mcd/20Ā° Radiation angle), soldered together in 6 groups of 4 LEDĀ“s.
Each group downstreamed to one resistor of 100 ohms /1 w
..........and i said:"There will be light!"
Not ready yet!
6 x same LEDĀ“s as before, assembled in 2 groups of 3 LEDĀ“s downstreamed to one resistor (each group) of 270 ohms / 1w .
Looks like this:
BTW:The power supply was processed too.The gloveboxeĀ“s light, lights up now when opening, without the need of actuating the light switch (something i was nerved of)
Not really.Soldering iron had been warmed up one time so.............
There had been two LED sets left over from my door-handle modding, https://www.passatworld.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=264728
,and profuseness is a sin .
So i drilled two wholes into the gloveboxes lid.Left and right beneath the handle and stationed those LEDĀ“s there.
May i ask :
OMG Michael, you're the king of modding. Very cool lighting set up.
No you are out of control Great stuff man.
yea i can tell
Pih they don't have to know every single detail!
Please excuse my tardiness.
Let me begin with the former mentioned topping.
It began with a piece of alloy which i turned to a disc (d=85mm, t=5mm)
This part was given to an engraver with a sticker as a master.
The engraved areas were painted black:
This black/matte alloy wasnĀ“t the right look.
So i decided to repaint the black areas with "R"- Line blue, and to polish the surface to a high-gloss finish.
The whole thing is the topping of my engine cover.
You think, that it was all ??
One of my co-workers wanted to razz me a bit about my LED bricolage.
So i pimped up my badge a little bit.
Marking a piece of acrylic glass
slotted,equiped with LEDĀ“s and casted with polyester resin:
Underpart with studscrews and 3M tape (mid/White area) and Armaflex tape to avoid scratches:
Installed and switched with an auto-levelling switch, working when opening the bonnet:
What do you think?
