There was one but I can't find the link. I think they were somewhere along the lines of .37 instead of .95.

It's real easy, If you can even use a soldering iron you can do this. The biggest thing is putting a "heat sink" on the led's leads to keep it from getting too hot. After that it's just a matter of hooking them up to the wire. email me @ rc_mania(at)comcast.net. I will be glad to send you a "book" that was given to me that explains it all in detail.

Lebos is good stuff. I just finished mine about 15 min ago. Here are a couple pics. I used a plastic wire guard for the housing, thats about the only difference in the plans. I am really happy with it.
