you are VERY wrong on that. Not to make you feel bad, but higher power LEDs have HUGE heat dissipation issues.
I had no idea. I stand corrected then.

Those look bright. Before everyone else says it, just check to see how hot they will be. And of course, post the pics.

once again it depends on the LED'*. LED'* do have heat issues becaues of their small surface area.

haro, my guess is that those are dimmer than 35watt bulbs. But worth a shot I guess.

I would suggest something different but it would require a lot more custom work.



or a few of

it is actually a LUXEONŽ K2 emitter.

the can put out typ 45, 60, 100 or 120 lumens each, depending model you buy.

Would I do it for him, possibily if my life wasn't so full right now. Would I help you out, yeah why not.
