The snow is coming and I am getting a 49 blower and have a 54" plow. Over this summer i did cut the lawn a bit at night. Those stock headlights are pretty bad. My friend and I deciede to build some LED headlights for my JD 318. (not ebay specials) Let me know what you think.

That actually turned out pretty good- you were able to overcome the reflector (or lack there of) problem. What did you use?

Now those are the first truly usable LEDs in 1156 bases I've seen. Thanks for the detailed pictures with the exposure info. That really helps put things into perspective.

Wow, those really light things up pretty good! Better than the LED's I'm using that's for sure.
