Step 1: Change bulbs

Change all halogen bulbs with led bulbs is very easy...

See in the last picture of this step how two led bulbs (two on the left) are much bright than the single halogen (on the right)

Step 2: Fix LEDs strips

1° - Clean all surfaces with a degreaser

2° - Solder the wires to the LED strips

3° - Close the ends of the strips with silicon

4° - Glue the strips under the cabinets with silicon

Step 3: Electrical connections
