I'm still debating on a few options with LEDs for my cluster. The first is trying better plugins. Second is components which will require me to buy a better soldering iron first
here they are:
Blue 5500 mcd 360° plugins.
5mm Blue 1200 mcd 120° LEDs
T-1 3/4 Blue 800 Luminous Flux(mim) 360° LEDs
If i do just components I'm thinking of soldering them into clusters of 6 using two 510k ohm resisters like TrePaul86
did in his howto
but instead doing it in the 194 twist-lock socket bases if possible so the LEDs can be easily installed/removed.
It also looks like it might be possible to do a combo of both plugins and components as yet another option. Gah I cant decide
