i currently have 2 problems with my xbox mods that i am trying to do .
1) jewel was cleaned with a acetone nail polish remover ( no named brand) and i made the mistake of soaking it instead of dabing and rubbing the paint off. it left a cloudy finish on it as well as markings on the front of my jewel to fix this i chose the sand paper solution and then cleared it up best i could with sand paper then a tooth brush and toothpaste .its a little clearer now but still cloudy . i was wondering it there is anything to fix that . chemically or otherwise.
my second was i bought a mutant mod led fan and followed the led fan tutorial
and when i tested it on my home computer the led's blinked and kinda fuzzed out i was wondering if i either used the wrong connection or plug for the led ring.
i also bougth el wire and was wondering if it would be better to string the led ring with the el wire 's inverter so that i would have a solid power cable not a home made one .
any thoughs or suggestions would be great. thank you
1) Same thing happened to me, except the rubbing alcohol I was using got on my fingers and left a bunch of marks somehow from me handling it. Sand it with high grit sandpaper, toohpaste seemed to work well too.
2) LED's are shot if they fuzzed out. THere should only be one connection, or an integrated connection for the LED's. Don't know how that would have happened, maybe stray metal somewhere touched it?
3) Are you saying to wire it past the inverter? If so then don't. But if you are saying to use the cable that came with the EL wire to have an unplugable LED ring, then wire it before the inverter. But if you are gonna use both of the lighting products together, (LED's and EL wire) then I'd wire them up on seperate wires, just to be safe.
Hope this helps!
