They are underwater Boat lights for the "Gin Palace's" - looked interesting, so I bought a few for a play

I like those. If I could find a purple one it'd be just the job.

I want to use leds on the buggy and the bus but am struggling to understand the differences between the various types. Will need to try and get to grips with it.

Its far easier than you think - give me a yell at some point and I`ll talk you through it   ;)
Thanks Dave, you're a diamond.

Do you mind if I nick that idea? No idea what the best leds - any pointers please?

The whole reason for posting it is to inspire madness into others as well  ;D

If looking on the net for LEDs, 99% of what you see will claim to be waterproof when they really are not, so I would be looking for something that is completely encapsulated with 12v wires coming out the back (I used 10 on each side) and certainly not the conventional ChineBay open strips that are cut to length. LED technology moves fast, and whilst the latest generation of "COB" is certainly the brightest (easily identified as they have a bright yellow coating on them, where others are clear), the colour range is not quite there yet which is why I went for the 5050 ones. If you want a quick crash course on the LED strips, then this page was quite good - but it must be stressed that these are the types of strips to be avoided in wet areas.

https://www.flexfireleds.com/pages/Comparison-between-3528-LEDs-and-5050-LEDs.html

If searching on the net for them, try  " SMD 5050 12v LED Module "

Thanks for this Dave. I have to admit this subject seems more complex than I thought. I want to use leds on the buggy and the bus but am struggling to understand the differences between the various types. Will need to try and get to grips with it.

Dave that's brilliant! Funnily enough I think I've got some conduit at the back of the garage too. Do you mind if I nick that idea? No idea what the best leds - any pointers please?

Top Job Dave  ;-)up

Guys and girls, could you please follow the format at the top of the list?

It makes collating the lists for whos arriving on what day, how many to arrange the buffet for and space for camping etc so much easier.

Also is there any interest in T shirts?  If that's a yes can I ask for another volunteer?
Flags, Myles Smith does t-shirts now, if you need somebody to make them?

........ and forever to be noted that everyone will have steering couplings in their spares box now.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Yup, got mine  ;-)up

Apart from anything else,  the Harwich ferry was a part of the experience for me last time as an IBW virgin.  Good banter and who'd want to miss "Don't worry be happy"!  ;D

6 or 7 buggies already! Over a year to go :D

I've broken down so many times my new approach is - 'I defy you stars' combined with having Snoopy close at hand !

Ah the benefits of 24/7/365 Snoopy Breakdown Services :D

Give that man a medal.
