Next, I took the lower flip-out door and carefully drilled a 9/32″ diameter hole for the ID light, which will go in the lower left-hand portion of the door. I then test-fit the LED I will be using to ensure it fit properly.
I also soldered two wires to each of the hinges, which will later supply the power to the ID LED in the lower flip-out door. I soldered these wires with the hinges separate from the door since I did not want the excessive heat of the soldering iron to damage the resin door.
I then measured the dimensions for the flip-out door’s access panel. I cut the provided styrene panel to a slightly larger size than the measured dimensions, then used a Dremel grinding tool to round the corners and remove the excess styrene until the panel fit properly. I also used a small file to remove any excess resin in the door that would interfere with the styrene being attached. I was also sure to mark a common corner on the panel and door so that that panel can be positioned properly when I permanently attach it.
I then filed out the holes for the LEDs on the main body’s top side to make room for the LED array, which will be installed later.
