Now it was time to use my template and my depth guide to build up the layers on the sides of the gun. I also had to make room for the transformer and circuitry from the UV tube, just extending the wires to the battery and to the Neon Tube. I also cut out room for the empty half of the Fish eye door thing and stuck that in, as well as a plastic back for my trigger grip. (Picture 1)
It also shows where the wire runs for the Uv Tube, it slots back into the gun after both raised sections.
Picture 2 Shows the Leds being put in place for the discharge lights. While picture 3 shows all of the circuitry in place as well as most of the cardboard pieces. The Silent light is in place as well as the led tubes, the copper piping and the microswitch. To make the Led Tubes I took steven123654’s instructable on ‘How to make an neon lamp (not really)’ and appropriated it for my own needs. I went to my local $2 store and found a changing colour stick thing. I pulled it apart and extracted the bubble stick part, and then using a 5mm drill bit drilled into the end the depth of the led. Once the led was in I just used some hot glue to seal it in place. The silent light is just an old piece of red plastic covering from an old kettle, which has a red led in it. For where the wires go you can just look at my shitty wiring location diagram. The arrows denounce where it goes through the gun to the other side to reach other components, just get a power drill and using a 5mm bit slowly drill through the cardboard once all the wires are in you can plug up the holes with a bit of PVA. In picture 4 you can see everything in place and ready to be puttied up. The painters tape will help make sure things do not get covered in putty.
