    Hello. I am new to the forum and i am building a homemade light bar using WANCO led arrow board lamps. I got these from the contractor that im working for since they threw them away because dust entered the lenses. I want to use my 10 led heads. The lamps are 1/2 of a watt. The led are very bright since they are used on arrow boards. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I want to this as cheap as possible but professionally made. Thank you


    here are the lamps

    "I want to this as cheap as possible but professionally made." those words don't go together..

    Why are you building this in your bathroom ?
