4. The LEDBERG hack involves creating wires for the 3 strip lightings
– First off at the back of each strip lighting there is a small circular tab that prevents the LED board from sliding out, melt away or drill through to remove it.
– Pull LED board out
– Desolder connector from board
– Solder wires to the connectors, placing a heat shrink on each connection part to prevent them from touching each other
– Put wires though the bottom of LED board and up through the hole to be solder onto the gold plates on the board.
– Repeat for 2 boards
– Place a wire organiser to cover wiring to look more nicely done up
5. Mount LED lighting to the underside of RAST bedside table top panel
6. Cut a piece of VARIERA Drawer mat to place on top surface
7. DONE!
