Adding LEDs to 1:43 scale diecast Police Cars
There are variations in the headlights and tail light designs in the different model diecast cars, which will require slight changes in this procedure, this is a general guide.

Evan Designs Diecast Police Car Kit Drill – preferably variable speed small Phillips screwdriver duct tape
sharp 7/64” and 1/8” drill bits Painters Tape Silicon glue such as Goop
Tape the windows, roof, trunk, and hood with painter's tape to prevent scratches during installation.
Turn the car over and remove the 2 or 3 small Phillips screws in the bottom of the chasis.
Pop off the Headlight and taillight lenses and grill. These lenses are held in place by extra plastic on the inside of the diecast body. This extra material inside the car can be cut away with a hobby knife, or heated up with a soldering iron and pulled off.
Drill a hole in the plastic floor of your car and thread the wires through. Depending on the model you may also need to drill a hole through a seat, or through the trunk to allow all wires to pass out the same hole. Put the plastic chasis back in place. Screw the car back together. Hook the wires to any 18 Volt or less power source.
