Introduction: LED Solar Powered Model Garage.
I'm building a model railway layout for my Father and I wanted to add some lighting to the buildings.
Whilst at a Pound/Dollar store I saw these garden solar power lights, for 1.00 Pound/Dollar each.
Then I had an Instructable thought.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Tools & Materials Required.

Step 2: Take the Lamp Apart.
Take the lamp apart and disgaurd everything except the Solar panel and the circuit board.
Step 3: Cut Out the Roof.
Cut the inside of the roof to accommodate the solar panel, use some of the plastic strip around the edges.
Then glue into place, along with the windows.
Step 4: Make a Bracket for the Curcit Board.
Using some of the plastic strip assemble a bracket to hold the board.
Step 5: Attach the Curcit Board.
Using the hot glue attach the board, re-solder the solar panel, and tape over the wires.
