hi you all....

I'm a new modder, and were I live it's hard to find those litte plastic pieces you put in every eletrical conection on the leds and soldered cables. what is that? does it work with heat? a regular hair-dryer could be used?

:(

thks!

I feel like you're referring to heatshrink tubing, of the type to be found with any google search, or here.
You slip a piece around the wires before you solder them, and then move the piece over the joint and apply heat to make it shrink to the wire.
You can use a hair dryer to shrink the tubing, but it's slow; or you could use a lighter, but it's not pretty; or if you want to spend the money, you could get a heat gun for around $20US, which is fast and neat.

YES! That's it! :D

I needed to know how to use and how it costed. cool! around 1.3 for 4" is very cheap.

In fact I live in Brazil, and I don't know were to buy these. anyway, I'll look for it! and my mom's powerfull hairdryer is gonna heat some tubes!! 8)

a heat gun for just 1 casemod isn't worth buying...

thks!
