Plug in Fog switch LEDS from Superbright

So after trying several different LED options for the foglight switch I finally have one I am happy with.

I picked up 2 nano T3 SMD plug in LED from super bright for a grand total of $6 heres the photo story of how they worked out.

The LEDs I used

Those look good.

Your other led's didn't have nearly enough light output (mcd's)... I use 8,000mcd minimum and some are 20,000mcd.

Ya I tried 2000s 6000s and 10000s they all looked like crap and these are far easier and cheaper then any of the components I have bought. Not to mention they take a lot less work, oh and don't mind the crappy soldering that was one of my test switches.
