Let there be ESK8 lights

If the 7000k cool white color is disagreeable to you, and the lights are bright enough that an ~10% output loss is acceptable, apply a layer of Kapton tape to the lenses.
When kapton tape.is placed on a halogen light lens, the color is very close to ‘selective yellow’ which is beneficial to the human eye for seeing properly in rain/fog.

Bluish light causes a lot of glare, screws with human eyeballs. People tend to think it is brighter, when it might not be.

The kapton tape deals with the heat, and can bee peeled off without leaving residue, so can be a worthwhile experiment.

Its all press fit and designed to be printed in stiff TPU. There is a hole in the base for a M5 grub screw to thread into the tpu and hopefully anchor it in place.

Stick a thumb tack inside it.

Then it will do something when you press it.
