Those ebay ones you linked to look like each individual LED has 2 wires coming out of it. You may want something more like this:

With the 2 wires connected to a board with multiple LEDs on it.

Good find probably too bright tho with that many led's, 2 wires = 1 pos 1 neg. should be a simple hook up. I'll be sure to let everyone know.

Those LED boards are about perfect to light up the cab. How are you planning on mounting the individual ones you got?

It's winter and a recession. That's reason enough for everyone to be pissy.
