Default Labcraft LED strip light for habition door

Labcraft LED upgrade

Old fitting removed and surfaces cleaned up

New fitting in place with sikaflex 512 along the top edge and 3 dollops on the bottom rail that takes the screws. I put masking tape along the top edge after marking the position with a pencil.
I pilot drilled 3 x 3mm holes in the GRP for the stainless steel screws (not supplied) Tighten it up and remove the excess adhesive and the masking tape. Beware of Rapido electrics, use a test meter, red is not necessarily positive! and certainly should not be used as a negative


Viola! NASA says 0.2 amps
