  • Note: 10 ft El Wire was not enough to fit my dashboard, so it is recommended to use 25 ft EZ-EL Wire.

  • Once you've designed the shape you wish on your car, cut about 2 inches of galvanized wire and twist the ends tightly together around the wire.
  • Use pliers to help you twist so it's easier on the tips of your fingers.
  • Use a wire cutter to cut the excess wire.
  • Continue this process throughout your design.
