Step 6: Light Pipes

Now that the grill is made, cut the holes for the light pipes.

Next take some clear plastic sheet (about 2mm thick) and cut into the sizes as shown. This may require some fiddly cutting and snapping with pliers as shown - please check out this video if you have not done this before, here.

As shown in the final picture - check to see that the light is transmitted effectively, by hovering it over the PCB.
