    Just a thought on this: If you're wanting to use yellow LEDs, there are ultra-brights out there that will (nearly) blind you. So the color is not a limiting factor on whether of not you can find some bright enough.

    Good luck,

    I got a LED kit off a guy on eBay. Did you get white or amber LEDs? I got amber and they don't seem bright enough. I'm thinking I'll have t rewire it for superbright white LEDs.

    I'd love to get ultra-bright LEDs, but I also don't want to have to wire these myself. If I could get brighter ones that came pre-wired to a battery pack I'd use those. Any ideas who might offer these Shackman?

    Another option is to get these "Amber LED Battery" lights and stick half of the lights in one eye and half in the other. Lots of lights would make it brighter too.

    Really nice job!
    Love the tutorial.

    Question - Can the eyes be too bright?
    Eventually, you'll light up the inside of the hood and see too much of the mask, I suppose

    Check over at http://www.TK409.com/tk409.html
    Scroll down to "The Jawa Project" There are some links for places to pick up parts, but certainly there are other options. It may seem kind of biased, but I honestly think my sister Di makes the best Jawa robes around. She does a fantastic job. Her email is linked in the Jawa article on my site.

    I thought I did my Jawa too hairy - apparently not!
