A friend whose just converted all the lights
in his boat to led kindly gave me a box of assorted led stuff, various leds, bases and a light
meter. So it's time to get going with that mod.
Having an overhead shelf unit across the rear, I wanted to install a light
in the center shining straight down on the table. I choose a s/s marine dome light
. The led version was twice the price of the standard one. So I bought one of those large flat leds on ebay and installed it in the fixture.
The fixture has a concave interior so I made a small flat plate to stick the led on. Easy to do as the mounting point was already there. The convex glass lense seems to radiate the light and it looks like it'll do a good job of lighting
up the table. No battery
in the trailer so I'll wait till it warms up to get a night shot of it in action. One light down, 3 to go
Santa was good to me. Lots of other mods to work on. I've got my battery
switch, volt meter panel to fabricate, the inverter to mount, and I picked up my $148.00 brakes
from R&P. Quality looks good. By the time I get everything done it's bound to be Spring. Can't happen soon enough for me.
