Just a thought?

I ended up keeping factory bulbs for light and adding color. Put in two 3 watt RGB LED's per side, or about $15 in LED's. Used plumbers aluminum tape for mounting and heatsink, sealed with silicone and drilled 1/4 holes to let light in. Working for a year.

My idea later was to install 10 watt white or RGB flood lights in stock locations. They have flat fronts and are big enough to fit. Clear is simple 12V, or run wiring for RGB.

White $20, http://www.amazon.com/LEDwholesalers...ed+flood+light

Or RGB for $23, http://www.amazon.com/Colorful-Flood...ed+flood+light

They say AC, but inside is just an inverter and start as 12V dc operation.

Thoughts???

Imagine a 10 watt flood back there, times 2!!!
