Well thank you, kind sir.

It isn't too bad, but it is outdated.

I no longer have roof racks or the jeep badges.... time for an updated photo shoot soon, i suppose.

Re: Replacing Vanity Lights with LED's

They easy to install? Plug N Play I would imagine.

Re: Replacing Vanity Lights with LED's

Yep, plug N play - once you nearly RIP off the clear protective lenses to get access to the bulbs. That was more difficult than was necessary.

Re: Replacing Vanity Lights with LED's

There for a while I used to think the vanity lights were soldered in.

Hi- looking to replace my bathroom vanity light. Was initially going to get a fixture with GU24 twist and lock CFL sockets, that will only take CFL bulbs. One friend, who is an architect, mentioned to me that screw-in CFL's don't work great retrofit in all lights, since the lights weren't designed for CFL's, and sometimes early failure will occur, which is why I was doing this. I've had about a quarter of my screw in CFL bulbs (different brands) fail on me in different lights, so that's why I was thinking about this. Also, the existing fixture doesn't work with the new paint, etc., so I'll be freecycling it.
However, with the growth of LED lighting, I'm not sure if this is the best route. Any input or thoughts? With the directionality of the LED's, I'm not sure how ideal they are for doing makeup, etc. I'd like a traditional looking bar light with frosted shades, nothing too modern.
1) Do you own a Jeep?

2) Any sockets can take CFL's. They're more recommended for fixtures that stay on for more than 15 minutes at a time as they don't like being turned off and on repeatedly in a short amount of time.

3) As for dying prematurely, I'm not sure if it's the socket or not but I would try to stick to big name brands like Sylvania or GE. I personally am using the GE 6500k 'Daylight' CFL's in my bathroom and bedrom. I love them.

4) Also, as you probably know a lot of people claim CFL's cause adverse health effects so be careful.
