yup, did it for two reasons; 1) dry camping - 60%+ of trips 2) the lil ones seem to pull off the covers and standard bulbs are HOT!

Now its up to the shop next week to fab a new bat. box frame and install a double 6V system. I see the spring light at the end of the tunnel and the wanna mods are in full swing.

between tying flies and red box videos in the down time, I have been designing a new rear bumper to accomodate some cumbersome items, including; kids toys, generator, and bbq/smoker option. I'll post pics when she's all done up for prom.

Got the shipment today for the "whole fixture" unit. Looks to be reasonably well made. 25 LEDs. I noticed that, between the 2 sides, one tilts a bit one way and the other tilts the other way. Probably an attempt to cast a bit broader swath of light. There also appears to be some "special" lensing in the cover. I'm anxious to try it out but it will be awhile. At least 2 months of winter left here!

Today the 36 LED board arrived. The board is smaller than the board in the whole fixture unit I bought, and the LEDs are much smaller but there are more of them vs the 25 in the fixture. It will be interesting to see the differences in "color" and light output. With 3 feet of snow on the ground, won't be tackling this install any time soon though.

I love ours and just ordered 8 more of the panels from the same guy on Ebay. Also got the first of the 3 different types of 1156 base LED bulbs for our 3 porch lights. I am gonna try them and see which ones look best. First on is in on our light above the entry door and it seems just as bright as the standard 1156 bulb that came in the light but much less amperage draw.
