Adding light to your ormerod

So after 3 years of having this machine, It occurred to me that I could add some lights to it.

These led strips cost 1E each, they are 30cm long so just a bit longer than my X rib but it fits. The wires are not crimmped so you can choose how to connect them to your atx. Also the back of the strip you peel off and just stick to the underside of your X rib.
It provides more than enough light and Its a cheap and easy to mount solution.
