Experiments with Lighting - Part 1

Ok folks - this thread will be where I show you the lighting modifications.

I've been taking my time identifying which switches, light fixtures, wiring etc were faulty or shorted. ( or plain beyond salvaging)

In this set of pictures, you'll see a few sets of fairly standard 12-volt lamp replacements for the old lighting (using much simpler wiring and lamp structure than the old circular florescents). You'll also notice that I dropped a set of 110VAC LED lights onto the cabinets over the kitchen sink. All in all - these new lighting sets work wonderfully. The LED - one set I did not photograph yet - I got a few LED Night Lights - for the bed area for my little ones. They automatically turn on when the photo sensor loses light at night and turn on those super high-efficience LED sets.
