I cut into the plastic to make room for the baubels (cut glass diamonds, etc) & foiled all the edges. well when you get all that hot enough to solder it works for a while.... then expansion starts putting hairline cracks the plastic. right from the start I did as much of the soldering as I could before inserting into the plastic & tried to work small bits at a time but can't stop it. I covered some, but it stared to look too crappy..... (not laughing.... thats the signal to go a different way). I think I can do it but will have to start from a different angle. I havn't given up totally yet, but as Tom S noted... the bike show looms & I want it to be in there.
