Here are a few photos of the Cup Holder Lighting.
Cutting out the pucks for the bottom of the cup holders.
The centering drill bit in the Hole Saw was removed for this step but you need a drill press to keep things from moving around.
The front (smaller) and rear pucks.
The center counter bore.
This was done with a 5/16” bit drilled in approximately 3/16” and then a ½” drill bit to open up the tapered edges, again only 3/16” in, not even the bits tip.
The tapered edge was added to direct some of the light to the puck edges.
The LED, notice the flat ribbon cable used, made it easy to keep things low and tight.
Oznium.com… part number: 1-1659-481, Prewired Surface Mount LED in RED; you can chose your own color.
The Cup Holder Mod for the wiring.
This method will not be used on the finished product, plan is to drill the bottom center and then seal the puck with windshield sealer for waterproofing. I believe the center drilling on the puck may disappear depending on light direction without the center bore.
Notice the heat shrink covering the resistor.
First shot of LED in the dark, slight angle.
Top View but with a 2” piece of Duck Tape over one of the LED Position.
I think some black paint will be better and it will be tried tomorrow night along with froasting the top surface of the puck.
So far so good, the LED that was chosen for the Cup Holder is a little too bright for my taste but with a little black out I think it will work
I may contact Oznium to see if I can change the resistor, thinking a higher resistance setup will reduce the light.
