Sorry, I'm not sure if the title says exactly what I mean. I really like attaching various LEDs to the number boards and headlight/taillight lenses. I mostly use Tamiya masking tape to keep them in place. However, the lights can and do move around. If they move, I have to open it up, and invariably something goes amiss. It doesn't help to have fat banana fingers. I do have a lot of nifty tools to use, but still....
I had used CA to glue the lights onto the lenses, and of course that made nice strong bond. However, on one of those the bulb went out for some reason, not sure why. Getting it off and not destroying the lens took a lot of time.
Does anyone have a preferred method to, say, but an LED behind a headlight lens to replace an incandescent bulb? I had thought about putting a piece of clear Scotch tape behind the lens, and then using CA to attach the LED to the tape, hoping that I could easily take off the tape if the bulb stops working. Of course, the tape could fall off after a bit, so perhaps not so good of an idea.
I wouldn't need to be so concerned if there was a ready supply of these things, but there isn't.
