Need help from LED experts here

Postby Echo [OP] » April 23rd 2017, 9:55pm

I eventually want to replace all the interior lights with LED.
Something like ultra bright CREE or some such thing.

My main project is I would like to put LEDs in those round dome lights with the ability to switch beteen white, blue, and red for night reading.

But I dont know anything about LEDs.

Is this possible? How can it be done?

You'd have to buy LEDs with a controller that allowed you to change colors. They make them with remote control, and you can choose just about any color. How you would mount them and wire them would be up to you...
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.

Don't get fleeced with the "CREE" brand designation. Every chinese knockoff POS is using the CREE name somewhere in their ad.
