This question might be old but if anybody looking for small led you must go to Evan Designs.com. There are couple of way to light these led 9v or Small Coin Cell. Here are light smaller than 3mm. 1.Chip 2.Nano 3.Pico. These are the smallest out there..
WIRING: I buy for $2.00 a 400 feet of extension phone line. It come with 4 wire inside. Red,Black, Yellow and Green. 400 feet X 4 Color is 1,600 FEET in all. Compare that to those Model store that charge 5' for 4.00 + S&H.
BOOT: and HINGE. Item I use for both. I buy large Coated Paper Clips that I buy for $1.00 and get 30 pcs all color. For the boot I stretch the clip into 1 long strip, than slice in the center and pull the coating out from each side. It come out very easy and HOLLOW. I cut boot size pcs and the phone wire fit perfect inside.. I tried to paint the clip (FLAT BLACK) with Enamel can and it it felt like they never dried up, soI threw the Alway. I had better luck painting them with a simple brush. It dried up in a couple of days also You can just used the color they came in. Walla!! I "$SAVE MONEY$"
HINGE I also used the Paper Clip stretch them straight and insert them in Stir Straw,to make Hinge. I get the stir straw from Bars.The Clip bend better than Tubbing and since it plastic Rubber it stick better.vYou can used regular model glue instead of CA. I have enough to make mistake.. Walla!! I "$SAVE MONEY$".
PS PLEASE EXCUSE MY GRAMA, IT SUCK BUT I STILL LOVE MODEL AND THE COMMUNITY AND TO HELP...Rockie from Philly but not Baboa..lol
I HAVE POSTED THIS BEFORE,WHAT I USE FOR MY WIRING ARE PHONE LINE. I BUY A 50 FEET LINE. IT HAS 4 COLOR RED,BLACK,GREEN AND YELLOW. SO 50 X 4 = 200 FEET OF LINE. I STRIP THEM AND CUT 5 IN AND SO ON. THE SAME WIRE YOU SEE ON EBAY 4FEET FOR 3.00 +S&H 4.00 I GET 50X4=200 FOR 3.00 ON DOLLAR LAND STORE
What I do is buy a 50 feet phone line cable for $3.00 or more. I strip out the wire and I have enough for 10 car or more. The wire are Red,Green,Yellow and Black. So I can add all kind or color. If you order wire from model company they give you 4in. for 4.00.1 color. I got 50feet x 4 = 200 feet for 3.00.. Buy the phone line and as you watch tv just pull them apart. I cut mine every 5in. and twirl them until i have 10 pcs and do the rest with the other 3.
i use to buy from Amazon but I notice for the prize of 1 car i gotten 3 on ebay. you be suprised. some are used but with everything in it, just a open box. i bought aot for under 11.00. ebay is the best way to go..
