Light spreading tape?

I'm going to buy those cheap angel eyes to my car: 4 x Multi Color RGB LED Halo Rings Light 90mm 5050 Super Bright Angel Eyes | eBay



But I absolutely HATE how the lights in the ring appears to be dotted. I would like a very clean ring of light instead of a dotted ring. So is there any tape that I could put on the led ring that is spreading the light so it appears not to be dotted?



I want it to look like this: http://g02.a.alicdn.com/kf/UT88cCJXb...gXXagOFbXD.jpg

Welcome to the forums.

I don't think there is anything you do to make LED lights look like CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) type lights and be effective. You could possibly cut a ring out of translucent plexiglass but it would reduce the light level and the effect.

Thanks.

Are you sure it's not possible to make it look good with LED's covered with something, such as translucent plexiglass?

Those are LED and they look good: RGB Angel Eyes Cotton Light LED Light DRL Turn Light For Car Headlights One set-in Angel Eyes from Automobiles & Motorcycles on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

Using a translucent cover will help, but each LED will still present a brighter spot. The problem will be finding one the right shape and size; check where you bought the lights.

At what range do you think the brighter spots all fuses together and looks more clean if I use a translucent cover? Are we talking about 1 m or 10 m?

You won't know until you try it. There is no way we could tell you ahead of time.
