Okay so I managed to get the wrist computer light sorted!

 

Started by blocking out the sides of it with some aluminium tape and just to be on the safe side I mixed some black paint with some gel medium to seal the edges where the foil meets the top

Then with no choice but to show off my AMAZING soldering skills I soldered some wire onto my led after threading it through the hole in the side

Just realised this pic was the first time I did it, you can see that I left the legs a bit long which was pushing it more over to one side which gave really uneven light when I tried it. So I used the soldering iron to remove it and cut the legs down before soldering it back on which allowed it to sit in the middle for even light distribution.

 

Then got it back in place and I gave it a test and let there be light!

Apologies for the crazy photo, that was me holding each wire on the battery and simultaneously taking a pic! Was really good seeing it lit up, I've backed out of lighting on so many projects was nice to see it coming together, even if my elctrical skills leave much to be desired! :lol:

 

Next up I'll get it glued in and then use greenstuff to fill around it and create a raised border around it

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)
