Default Installing LEDs

That went smoothly. As Grant suggested, I inserted all the LEDs, attached the panels, then pushed the LEDs out as far as they could go and soldered them. I found it helped to slightly bend the LED leads to stop them sliding out while I was fiddling with attaching the panels. Don't bend them much, though, because you want the leads to be straight when you've finished soldering. Also, solder one lead on each LED then recheck their position before soldering the other lead; a couple of mine had slipped down slightly and it was a lot easier to reposition them with only one lead attached.

Good luck. Keep us posted on your progress.
