  1. Print selected pictures on a lazer printer.
  2. Cut template out and glue template to self adhesive film.
  3. Cut template out from self adhesive film.
  4. Glue self adhesive film to the EL-panel
  5. The result you can see on photos.

For me the result is remarkable.

For addition you need to find 12v power supply at home or solder car cigarette lighter connector.

El - panel and invertor are very lightweight and may be glued to a car glass by Scotch tape.
