Last nights Soldering Party

Last night Juan, Arian and me worked on the frame some. We started by placing the LED's with correct polarity into the baffles. Once we checked they were right we hot glued them in place. After cleaning the leads to the LED's we then prepped them to be soldered. After bending the leads on each of the 66 LED's we ran two wires across the one side of the frame. These will act as a "bus" for electrons to ride into the LED's sets and complete a circuit.
We were able to solder 33 LED's last night and test 1 set of 3 + resistor through the bus line. It worked great. There was only one big problem left to solve - how to we get power from the wall into the bus line?
