    I got a 5 meters of LED-strip. LEDs are a normal quality, but some pieces have a "low-cost" soldering...

    For this project, I use just a 2 meters of small (10...25cm) pieces without this soldering.
    The rest I will give to my children for bikes.

    I'm guessing you use surgical tools to plug those in? She's too tidy for human fingers to fit in.

    No, the project is not finished, because I have very little free time.
