Getting rid of fluorescent light look

I used photo gel ( protag reco) to change the look from fluorescent light to an incandescent bulb look.. Not 100% but it's close.. I also changed 3 lights to a drop down dimming light fixture..

If memory serves, the color I recommended was called "bastard amber."

Good to see I'm not the only one to add a fan for the rear. Did you do that after I dropped by?

I agree. The fans help but still on a 95* day on the road, it still gets pretty warm in the back.

If I were to have an upfitter build one, I'd consider starting w/ a Sprinter w/ rear A/C. I assume it's ducted. Or if that doesn't work, put a split unit w/ the compressor and condenser underneath w/ generator and evaporator inside.

Yes, that's it and Protag got me on the right track with the stuff. Here is the difference with one LED done and the other the stock look. There is not as much difference as seems here--the LEDs are just sooooooo white that they make the Amber look real different. Did my 30 FC everywhere but the roof recessed lighting. Those are only on if we are cleaning up, wife needs massive lighting for some reason, or we are preforming open heart surgery.
No heat from the LEDs so you can just wrap the bank of lights and plug them back in. Works great and easy.

What a nice effect. I clicked on the Amazon link but found very little detail there. Are the filters sold in sheets? What size? Do you just trim to fit inside the light fixture? Pardon my ignorance and thanks for your help!

Yes they sell them by the sheet.. There is a little ring that holds a glass insert.. I took the glass insert out and cut a piece a little bit larger so it would fold up the sides of the glass when I reinserted it making sure it would stay in place..

One sheet will do many lights. With those cheap plastic lens double light fixtures, you just slide off the lens, cut a slightly larger square of the film to cover the bank of LEDs. Pull out the LED bank, wrap and tape the film over the lights and plug back in. No heat, so film can lay right on the lights.
