I installed one of these LED lights and have to say...I am disappointed. The lenses were plastic and looked used, and while the LED lights themselves appeared to be bright, I just don't care for the blueish LED lights.

This is not a permanent replacement for me for landing lights, and I would not recommend them.

Jeff,
How are your landing lights holding up?

Jeff Kunzelman put some LED landing lights in and likes them. I bought some like he had but haven't gotten around to that particular project yet.
