    Not to someone from Quebec, of course! The Quebecois sense of humor is well known around thw world. No, for it to be funny to someone in Quebec, I would of course first have to remove my own head with an axe!

    And with that, I bid you adieu.

    looks like if one goes out the whole set goes out

    why didn't you wire them in parallel?

    What would be the minimum intensity of LED would work for tail lights? I've found 10000 mcd, 13000, 18000 and even 20000. Which should I buy for my project. They would go in stock tail light lens on a Subaru Legacy 05.

    I would say 10 000 mcd in your case, anything over that is just crazy, even 10 000mcd is crazy. I would use like 6000mcd since at these mcd ratings its blinding to look directly at them. Also look for led's that have a big viewing angle.

    What would be cool is to make brake lights with super bright UV l.e.d's (like 2000 mcd) So you blinde the cops as they chase you

    I suggest you check besthongkong on ebay:
    http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZbesthongkong

    He as amazing prices and good leds (that where I mostly buy them) He as sometimes deals like 15$ for 100 leds and free shipping. Also I use lsdiodes.com when I buy in small quantity as I find they have the best quality led's around.

    Well, brighter is almost always better. If its too bright then you can put a resistor on them

    And BTW: You can't blind COPS with UV l.e.ds. UV light is almost invisible. Its for glow in the dark stuff.
