So today I worked on all 16 of the marker lights. Found some had stopped working simply because they lost their ground. Apparently these lights use the chrome plating as a ground and if that plating crumbles or the screw gets too rusty, you lose ground and the light is either very dim or doesn't work at all.
Off to the hardware store to get new stainless hardware to put the lights back together with, so hopefully we don't lose our ground again, along with the LED bulbs. I changed out a lot of the lights. Still have a few more to work on tomorrow, ran out of daylight and didn't feel like donating that much blood to the mosquitoes so....

Here's some of the old ones I took out:
