Step 1: Basic Design
black spray paint
100 ohm resistor
soldering iron and solder
Basically its a disk II faceplate elevated with some black-painted-plexiglass strips superglued to the sides
Step 2: Base Construction
Step 3: Putting the Sides On!
Step 4: Splice!!
-Cut the ipod cable close to the ipod connector side and strip all four wires on each side.
-Superglue connecter to piece of plexiglass so connector sticks out above plexiglass.
-Solder white and green wires back together.
-Splice in led and 100 ohm resistor to power (red and black wires) and solder back together
-Superglue plexiglass into middle of drive slot.
-Tape connections and tape down wires to faceplate with electrical tape.
