Ok. I've now done it successfully too. Spliced and soldered wires and then taped the crap out of them. Works great. Thanks for the input everyone.  Grin

How long did you have extended your CCFL wires? (initial length / new length)?
I'm on this phase now and I have some problems... (see my build log).

I extended mine about a foot.  I used some wire from old ccfls, so maybe thats why?
They are made specifically to withstand a large current.

Made that, not my best, but I love it.  Firefoxy lol

mine were 15cm and I made them 25cm with no real problems. I had originally made them 60cm long and this caused serious problems. not enough juice getting to the bulbs.

Here's a good idea:

Personally with my first screen attempt, I've successfully used rc model cables, the ones with silicon insulation rated to high amperage. They work perfectly.
