7. Enclosures to protect

With the first illumination done, it’s time to protect the super bright light board with an enclosure. This will use the two enclosure pieces – the lower enclosure and lid.

Obtain the back enclosure for the super bright lights. Insert the circuit board in to it. The wires from the LEDs should be at the edge of the enclosure where there is an opening for them.

Using your screw driver and selected bit, add the 4x M3 8mm screws to fasten the circuit board to the enclosure.

Here is what it should look like.

Obtain the lid to the enclosure. Orient it so the opening slots line up. Using your screw driver and selected bit, add the 4x M3 5mm screws to fasten the lid to the lower enclosure.

Congratulations! You have completed the enclosure.

If you wish, attach the jumpers to the Arduino again and test the LEDs to see them illuminate.
