they are just normal LED's - different sizes due to i just used ones lieing around!

there are normally two globes in there, so i just hooked up the led's to the positive of one of the globes wires and the negative of the other.. then the otherway round for the other leds! i just did as many as i could.. coz it has to go through a sorta yellowy white silicon chip thingo to get out... looks a little lighter in real life... but better than being white!


how do you hold them in so they don't fall out? with glue?

u can.... but they prolly wont be bright enough, u need THE brightest you can get!! plus LED's with wire legs make it easier to solder and angle where you want them to shine!
