Vintage trailer lighting can be tricky. These are a kool product made by @diodeled that are 2.13watt gimbal spots. Only use a 1.75" hole and are really easy to install. These are a 15degree in a 3000k. #trailer #airstream #trailerlife #diodeled #spotmod #ledlighting #slosparky #805 #slo #centralcoast #airstreamdreams #airstreamlights #workspace #airstreamoffice #ledlife #...
