Colby got me a VW LED hood badge that is meant to replace the front badge on new VW Beetles. You can pick these up at Amazon for around 20 dollars. We decided that it’d look really cool if we displayed it in a shadow box. Lenora picked up a shadow box at Hobby Lobby on sale for around 9 dollars. The LED badge had 3m tape on the back, so after I drilled a hole in the back of the shadow box for the power cord, peeled the 3m tape, it stuck nicely to the back of the shadow box. I had an extra 12v DC power supply laying around the garage, so I installed a quick release, secured the wiring to the back of the shadow box and everything was set. The blue LED on the badge perfectly matches my pc LED’s, my backlit keyboard and the LEDs that surround the VW deck lid shelf that I made last year. Nice project for under 30 dollars.
