You will have to persuade Elmacho to put his in this weekend and take comparison pictures left vs right.

I have not used those, but head good things about them.

I'm going all out and making full LED circuit boards.

i think that they would look OK, i would be worried about light reflecting back to the reflector like a conventional bulb

well with a conventional bulb design, you have the reflector in the lens to reflect the light back...that is y you dont technally see the bulb, just the reflection of the light....with a LED i would be worried about not enough reflection on the reflector therefore making you be more able to just see the LED bulbs instead of a even glow of light
