I wanted to do more with the dome lighting than what was shown in the movie. There, each array was made of 5 led’s and they didn’t do much. This was one spot where it’s “easy” to make it more interesting.
I purchased 100 2x5x7 mm LEDs. I knew they had a flange, but I could deal with that. The openings in the dome are roughly 4×23 mm. So, I’d need to mount 11 LEDs in a row to fill the opening.
