if so, then i'm in!! i have acrylic rod (3 different diameters) and want to 'play' with some angel eye designs, i have some leds that are beggin to be hooked up.

the only thing is i thought that i'd hafta buy euro lights to separate them, but now i'm just a little concerned about warpage....hmmm...maybe some ebay aftermarket units...

My Miniature Pinscher goes crazy when I drive around the place at night. He thinks he's supposed to follow the lights. When they're pointed into the trees he gets pretty weirded- out

I hadn't thought about the heat warping the lenses (or back!) Scratch that!
