    fugginAye!!

    Are they 60* angles, or 180s, or what?

    2VDC? I think it's a 480ohm or something that i need to drop 12v down to 2v..

    But, yeah! lol

    bush pics will make mods mad, FYI

    they are ~3.2V, 4 of them will work well in series, but for every LED i have, i have a resistor to make it operate alone on a 12V circuit.

    Why?? should I remove it?

    Just series 4, and not use a resistor? Is that what you mean?

    I'll prolly do them in parallel, with resistors..

    Whatcha want for a handful or so?
    PM me..

    A pic of a politician that has any hint of political content has the potential to start WWIII on an open forum. If it's purely comedy, (ie..a pic of Bush with a funny look on his face, saying "I'd Hit It!!"), then most mods will let it slide. No political guys in avatars, though.

    At first I thought you guys were talking about a pic that had the other kind of bush in it. That kind will get you an insta-ban.
