But then again diffusing the leds will take the same light output of the led and spread it over a wider beam, so I don't think you gained anything by starting out with 'high brightness' in the first place just to then sand them down Vs getting diffused leds in the first place. However the proof is in the tasting of the pudding so maybe when you are done get a single diffused led of the same size and see if you did indeed gain any overall brightness.Lefty
It took about 5 minutes to get it lightly diffused
There maybe a quick easy way to use chemically diffuse them (dip in acetone, something) I also considered flat based transparent lacquer, but I just dont think it will diffuse much. I should probably experiment more.
brake fluid, plastic glue, brake cleaner dont seem to effect the plastic either. I seem to be out of paint stripper.
