I need help finding that great post about...
 
Okay, I'll start...

A few months ago, I came across this great post where some dude had purchased some cheap LEDs from a big box store, stripped them down, did some mojo on the wiring - and turned them into some very sweet cabin light bulbs. It had pics and everything.

Can somebody link a brotha up?

I looked in both those threads but couldn't find the post I was thinking of. Thanks for the tips though.

That's very close to what I saw. The only difference is that the other guy actually pulled the "bulbs" (or cards) from the LED fixtures and wired those into his cabin fixtures.

It looks like the LED festoon bulbs aren't too much more expensive than going the rip and stick route like above.

Looks like I have a new project!

Thanks fellas.

Glad to see it wasn't my inept computer skills -- that thing was driving me nuts!
