Agreed, the reflectivity of the snow does exaggerate the illumination, but the whiteness of the snow really shows off the light pattern and how even the illumination is. This is darned impressive to me!

I look forward to getting some big tasks behind me and work on some fun stuff like LEDs inside and out.

Good job sir!

Zep....
Did you only buy the flat lens versions?
Cos I have the convex ones... and I just had a brain storm...
I took the lens out and turned it inside out....
It fits!
The light is no longer a circular beam... its a mega flood light!
Light comes out of the lens and has a virtual 180 soft wide beam... little focus, just super wide and consistant!
I like it!
Try flipping your home made lenses?

Tricky to take some pics but here is the best I could do...

Lens in normal position...



Light output sitting on bench sideways...
You can clearly see the focused beam.




Light output vertical about 1 or 2" off bench..




Lens reversed...



Sideways on bench..
Note flat and wide flood of light.



Again, about 1 to 2" off bench..

We are glad to have the snow, but I agree with the prosecutor that Paxataunie Phil missed his spring forecast this year!

The LEDs have been on for over 2 months without a failure. They are operating at about half-power, which doesn't stress them at all. I find it intersting how obvious the color temperatures are--the spots are the warmest and the step light is way into the blue. I'm surprised at the pure white of the LED discs in the over-door light--they were advertised as "warm."

Was the install on this pretty plug and play using the clip connector shown?

I did not have to do a thing other than plug it into the old socket.

I opted for the dog dish hack also. The serious advantage to this fix, in my opinion, is that you can literally screw the dish right over the existing fixture using the same screws. I got a bit more detailed with the dremel on mine, result was a slightly more OEM look. From 5' away it looks factory. (If I were more of a crafty person I could probably have improved that.)
