'78 Sovereign over bed light LED conversion

Lights are from DiodeLed in California they are the True Focus model 12" about 22$ each I ordered them at a local electrical supplier, the little tabs are .050 aluminum ripped on a table saw and bent on the tip of a set of pliers. The rivers are .125 they fit right into the holes of the supplied lamp holders from DiodeLed, I removed all the old bulbs and sockets and wired the led tube to the original switch. In the last pic the original incandescent is on the left and the new led on the right!

Sure the brand is DiodeLed the website is http://www.diodeled.com/ they have a "where to buy" button to locate a dealer near you, the model of led tube that I have been using is DI-0250 it's a soft white and doesn't have that brilliant white effect it's closer to an incandescent glow. You guys beware of the cheap led stuff on amazon and eBay those replacement bulbs that are 10 for 30 bucks are crap I'm changing all my lights out and it's a little expensive but it's worth it. If anyone has any questions feel free to contact me, I have lots of ideas and plans for my 78 sovereign I am currently living in it and working on it at the same time.
