Along with the copper tape, I find it handy to use some 22 gauge speaker wire to
act as a leader wire from the EL wire to the driver.
Split the leader (speaker) wire into its separare halves.
El wire demo pices, top it green, bottom is yellow.
This helps to strip the EL wire without too much hassle
my friend... need a light?
Heat guns generate extreme heat BE CAREFUL if you have and or use one.
You can literally light a cigarette with one of these!
ouch ouch ouch! not really, its not that hot... but still be careful! I take no responsibility here.
This step always pulls the center copper core wire out a little, and causes the thin "wrap" wires
to also come out, be sure to pull them back.
When I pull the copper tape around the EL wire for a second time, I put the copper tape a bit lower then the
first go-around. Reason is, so I can see the thin "wrap wires" and can solder them to the copper tape.
