New Cockpit Lights

Post by vabeach1234 »

I picked up some waterproof LED strip lights for the cockpit. They came with an adhesive strip backing but that was junk, they just wouldn't stay put. I had to get some heavy duty double side tape to get them to stay in place. I'm happy with how they turned out.

Nice! I installed my lights last summer. They come with a remote with a slew of different color combinations, speed, fade etc. :-)

Nice! I got the dumb ones. No fade or color change. I didn't need another remote that requires batteries and would eventually get lost.

That looks really good.
I just received an order from Amazon. I'm going to install them inside and out...one day....maybe!

Looking good gents. LED strips are on my list as well. Had the multicolor model on our Bertram a few years back.
Currently Trojan-less :?

Looks very nice, but I would be afraid to do it up here because of the amount of bugs / mosquitoes / spiders they would attract at night... when I sit in the cockpit at night, I don't really want to broadcast to the mosquitoes where they can find dinner and lure them in!
