Add a muzzle flash to a Nyko Perfect Shot Wii grip

This instructable is going to be all about adding a flash to the end of the Nyko Perfect Shot gun grip for Wii remotes.
I like the grip a lot for shooting games like Resident Evil, but to me it lacked the visual accents that a real gun has. Accents like the flash when the gun is shot.
This instructable is pretty simple and easy to follow. I also added a rechargable battery so it doesn't use the Wii remote's battery power, they run out fast enough as it is.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Picture of Materials and Tools
This instructable doesn't need very many materials.

-1x Slider switch or rocker switch, must be pretty small
-1x small form factor rechargable battery - 3.6 volts
-1x momentary switch - The softer and quieter the better - I think that is the type of switch
-Lots of wire, thin wire
-1x headphone jack and socket
-1x cell phone backlight or white LED

-Philips screwdriver
-Soldering iron
-Wire cutters
-Wire strippers
-Hot glue gun and plenty of glue

Step 2: Take it apart

You may notice in the picture that the battery is already in the gun, I took the pictures after I finished the gun.

You need to take out all of the screws you can see, there are two hidden on the blue handgrip piece. Take a flat screwdriver or the sort and slide it under the edge to pop it out. the one that covers the screws is on the same side as all of the other screw holes.

Around the trigger it is glued together, you might need to use that flat screwdriver again to pry it apart. Be careful, it is very easy to break.
Carefully remove the orange clasp at the top by pulling the sides away from the gun. It is also quite easy to break.

Step 3: Put it together

The very crude schematic I included in this step shows how to wire it all up.

you could probably try using a vibrating motor, thats probably the closest you can get to recoil.
A small solenoid could be used, one on each side to give you a balanced movement and not screw up those perfect skeet shots on Wii Play. ;)
