The lights look good. But, I have a question. I put 12v led from superbrite around top of wifes golf cart. I put 120v around different areas of white bus. Now the question. At nite when it is dark with no "Nite Lights" on, I can see some of the leds glowing. I have disconnected from power sources, and they still glow. I have not been drinking, and ET is not home. I have used a dvm and cannot read any voltage. Is this normal or am I haunted.

I would go with the haunted theory

I'm guessing induction from overhead power lines or some other magnetic field (but probably not an EMP burst). A long string of cable with LEDs attached is probably exactly what you'd design if you trying to show an induction effect.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Jeremy, you may have hit it. I did not see this at Terlingua, wher power lines are non-existant. At home, there is an underground power line under the shed where we park. Guess I'll have to check.

Bob,
   Which level white are you using? Warm, Cool, Bright, etc.

It was the 3000 bandwidth.  1/2 way:: The bright is 6000 I think . Good all around light but would need spot area light for book reading.(long time). I can dim them  to watch tv easily.  Bob
