FEET

This page is part of my Central Lighting modification where I used Light My Bricks (LMB) lighting components to light and power the entire model from a single power source.

DISCLAIMER: If you choose to attempt these modifications, you assume all risks thereof. I just wanted to share my experiences here. Neither Fanhome/DeAgostini, nor myself, are responsible for any damages that may occur.


Feet

NOTE: This section depicts my Left Foot, but the process is the same for both feet. Just repeat/mirror it for the other side.

Step 1

Remove the two (2) AM screws securing the Heel to the Foot, then carefully pull the Heel away:

I also removed the front Sole/Switch section of my Foot, but this is not necessary for the mod. I only did it to provide better visibility in the next steps:

Step 2

Gently twist the stock LED and remove it from the LED Holder:

Step 3

Secure a Bit Light facing down into the opening of the LED Holder. Make sure the wires of this Bit Light are facing the rear of the Heel.

As before, I used super glue gel here:

Step 4

Set the Heel aside for now. Disassemble the Ankle Joint by removing the one (1) MP screw:

Step 5

Detach the Ankle Joint Cover from inside the Foot by removing the four (4) EM screws. Pull it and the Ankle Joint out:

Step 6

Bring your Heel over and feed the plug of the Bit Light up through this rectangular opening:

Step 7

Reinstall the Ankle Joint and Ankle Joint Cover. Note how the Bit Light cable fits through this small slot between the parts:

Step 8

Connect this Bit Light to power to test it is working:

Step 9

Tuck the stock wiring/LED inside the cavity of the Foot. Here it is as the front, but there is plenty of room above the Heel as well:

Step 10

Reassemble the rest of the Foot:

We will run the cable from this light up the leg in later stages of the build:
