Hey folks,

A group of us are working on modifying our pilot kits to TLJ standards. So... gotta light up our chest boxes! WE are using Roman Bela's kit, which is hollow, allowing easy access for light.

I started by wiring up some prototype boards , soldering in the LED's , resistors, a switch, and a screw terminal for attaching a battery.





That works, but it is work intensive, so I did a small run of circuit cards to reduce the time soldering (and reduce iron burns).





It fits neatly into the back of Roman's box.



Et Voila!
