Hi I'm a newb to this board but I've been a lurker for a week or so.
A friend and I are going to start making the Halo 3 Mjolnir armor and I was getting a list for all the stuff that we needed but the one part that's stumping me the most are the LED lights.
I've looked up a bunch of tutorials but it's still really confusing.
So I was wondering if someone could tell me first hand how they did it on their suit just so I can understand it.
Thanks very much!

The ones I got come pre-wired with resisters and the wires are the perfect length to have the battery and switch in the back of the helmet.

Just cut off the pc power connect splice the wires on all four leds then connect the positive wires to the switch then connect connector to the other end of the switch and the negative wires to the connector negative, plug in battery. Zing zam zoom you got four working leds ready to mount.

I bought 4 LEDS from

Realm, you rock, thanks!

Red, that'd be funny as hell to do a skit on.. grab some kid with badly painted armor, and then spoof the whole show..

Slap a Magnetized Plasma grenade onto his back as he walks out..

Sgt. Johnson: I think we'll do a couple of coats of flat O.D. Green, then top it off with some stylin' flames to give it that fresh look.
