Angel Eyes- My winter project

I just thought I would post a couple pictures of my winter project. I made homemade angel eyes using a curtain rod with two led's, one on each end. I also put three led's in each of the vents. As you can tell in one of the pictures, my right side vent has a burnt out led already. I just finished everything last night and was pretty excited. I think it looks pretty sweet. Hope you all like them. Any questions just let me know. I can give a more detailed description of how I did everything if you want.

Re: Angel Eyes- My winter project

Nice job. Why has the one led burnt out already, do you have the correct resistors in place ?

Do, or do not, there is no try !

Re: Angel Eyes- My winter project

Yes I do have the resistors in the right place. I'm guessing I fried it when I soldered the wires to the led by getting it to hot. That the only reason I can think of, I bought 100 leds and resistors off ebay and I used 10 so far on the bike and I've burned out about 40 making sure I get them wired up right so I didn't burn out the ones on the bike.
