Added gels to LED lights
Had to wait for some paint to dry on battery box mod so in the downtime I found another project. Not sure where I saw this mentioned or I'd give credit where it's due. I didn't like the harsh blueish/white led lighting in the trailer. I prefer the warmer light of a normal bulb, so now I have the best of both worlds. I purchased color correcting gel sheets that are used In Photography and video lighting. I opted for a sheet of CTO (Color Temerature Orange) and went with the lightest film which is 1/4 stop correcting. I figured if I needed more correction I could stack layers. I ended up with a 24"x21" sheet for around $6.00 and have enough left to do another trailer at least.
I first popped out a lens cover and traced it so I could cut a gel to fit. Once it was perfect I proceed to trace the good gel until I had enough for all the lights. The only issue I had was trying to get a hole in the center of the gel for the lights that had center buttons. Finally I ended up using a soldering iron and lined the whole stack up, and melted a hole through all 10 at once and it's perfect.
