    I also got the 10mm, I'm using them to make mini spotlights. So far I am happy with the effect. I'm also using a 12VDC wall wart to power them.

    I have seen this on and off CL for the last 3 years. It is the ultimate Halloween prop. I have a 1973 Cadillac Hearse in my yard haunt. Everyone loves it. It's also great for hauling stuff.
