Light Tape Sample
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! It’s heeeeeeere!!
and with the light turned off:
It’s PERFECT!! Man this stuff is hard to get a good picture of. No matter what I do it just ends up looking white when the light is turned on. In person the entire thing is a solid, vibrant, green when lit up.
This sample I got is 1/2″x4′ and it runs off a 9v battery via an included driver box.
The dash mark lines at the top are the non-center curves on the shoulder bells. Since it’s a curve along the off center surface of a sphere I can’t have a singular strip because the strip would have to curve and light tape doesn’t curve. So it’ll be one big strip down the center and 5 small strips along each side. I’ll be using my sample piece for the small strips.
Hopefully it’s not too hard to connect everything together, but if anything it won’t be harder than doing LEDs, so there’s that.
The tape doesn’t work for lighting the visor so I’ll have to figure something else out for that – maybe just a couple LEDs.
Yay! I am SO glad this is working out.
