Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
Agree with both. Also, be careful that the light doesn't actually shine through a wider, or narrower arc than it should. But, as you said, for a trailer sailer, that won't be in the dark much, probably fine. Great trick for getting lots of lights at a low cost. My house battery has been screaming at me for a few years to try such a mod.
If you lightly sand the LED's with a 600 grit paper it will defuse the directionality of the LED's and they will look more like a regular bulb also sanding wont dim the bulbs only defuse it light
