In this instructable I will show you how to light up you skateboard using LEDs. In my example i put the LEDs upward, but you can put them downward for a neon like effect. I had this idea whne my friend pimped hi tricycle and had the idea to put neon on it. This gives a really cool effect on your pants and you can easily be seen from 100m away! Enjoy your new board that now is different and road safe!
English isn't my first language, so if you see mistakes/grammar problems don't blame me. I also like to show things visually instead of describing them; this is the reason for the amount of pictures used.
Step 1: Equipment
- Drill & drill bit the size of a LED
- Soldering Iron & soldering iron
- Glue gun (optional)
- Wire cutters
- LEDs (I used 6)
- 9V battery
