[title] Soldering the LED strips
[* red] dStrip 2mm (1/8") of insulation from the end of the 200mm red and black wires you saved from '''Step 32'''. Tin the ends of the wire with solder.
[* red] Tin the ends of all four ''LED strip'' terminal pads on the corner with the '''X''' label (which is underneath where you can't see!).
[* red] Carefully solder the red wire to the (+) terminal on one strip.
[* red] Route the wire to the (+) terminal pad on the other LED strip and cut it to length with a little extra to allow for soldering.
[* red] Strip 2mm (1/8") of the insulation off the end of the wire, tin it and solder it to the (+) terminal pad.
[* red] Repeat this process with the black wire connected to the (-) terminal pads. The photo shows the completed connections.
[* icon_reminder] Your (+) may be opposite that shown in the photo, that's perfectly fine as long as all three ''LED strips'' are aligned the same.
[* icon_note] Repeat the steps above with at the '''Y''' corner.
