    Sirs

    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:




    5mm studscrew





    Actuator:Check
    Switch:Check
    Lights:???????






    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











    Tadaaaaa:
    ..........and i said:"There will be light!"
































    Not ready yet!










    Stage 2:












    Cupholder lighting:










    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)







    Ready?
    Not really.Soldering iron had been warmed up one time so.............





    Stage 3

    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.






    front sight:


















    May i ask :

    Sirs

    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.







    Former look:







    New look:









    Sooooooooo...........
    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.





    Step 1:

    Marking a piece of acrylic glass






    Step 2:

    slotted,equiped with LEDĀ“s and casted with polyester resin:




    Step 3:

    Underpart with studscrews and 3M tape (mid/White area) and Armaflex tape to avoid scratches:





    Step 4:

    Installed and switched with an auto-levelling switch, working when opening the bonnet:

















    What do you think?
