Default Help with LED'*

Looking for some help with LED'*. I am looking to create a 12"x1.5" LED grid, with a fairly good density. I was looking at stacking a few of something like this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/24-LED-Strip-Car...item43a243bc55

Another option I have found is using circuit board:

http://cgi.ebay.com/3pcs-Project-Pro...item4150e3e258

With a bunch of these:

http://cgi.ebay.com/100-Pcs-5mm-Red-...07263518357798

I also would welcome the option of a grid of holes that LED'* would fit in to, so as to hold the bulb of the led instead of the leads.

Another thing I would love to find would be a dual color LED that does amber and white.

Any help is appreciated, as well as suggestions. Don't want to reveal the nature of the project yet, because I want it to get off the ground before I go around having fun.

Biggest concern I am having with the board though is that I am having trouble finding it in the size I need it.

Gonna give this a quick bump, by adding a new question.

I am looking for some white LED strips, and am looking for anybody who has had experience with any of them. I know they are on ebay all day long, but I need some bright ones. I mean really bright. DRL bright, too bright to run at night. I don't know how bright the ones are on ebay. Any insight is appreciated in this regard, as well as any input as to sources for these as well <how to get them, NOT how to hook them up>.

Just came across something completely evil, yet wickedly awesome.

http://cgi.ebay.com/10W-HIGHPOWER-WH...13070127169736

I would be willing to bet they would fit nicely in the reverse lights, 2 per side. A refresher for those who forgot what the rear end of a Park Avenue looks like.

Looking at it, I may be able to get away with just one per side, especially if I swap out Ultra tail lights.

This is the warm white not the bright white.
