    No problem, OneTwoKombo. I like to share all my ideas, both good and bad.

    Mine was the last one at the North Oshawa location. When I get home, I'll check the part number. It was made by Philips.

    Edit: Amazon.ca has them here:http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B009...=renewtopia-20

    Amazon.ca has the T10 two pack for a little cheaper than Canadian Tire:

    http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B009...=renewtopia-20

    EDIT: Buy both from amazon.ca, and the shipping is free. Wish I knew that before, I could have saved a few sheckles and the trip to Canadian Tire.

    Did some research, this festoon light is a little cheaper: http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B009...=renewtopia-20

    Great idea Alpha, picked up mine today (CT had lots in stock). Slightly different number than the ones you linked at Amazon... mine say 6000K, Amazon link shows 4000K, not sure if that number refers to brightness or what...

    Anyway, even in full sunlight it's amazing how bright these are!

    EDIT: arrgh...forgot to get the hatch light

    Good eye, I never noticed that! Actually, that refers to the colour temperature. The 6000k is a very cool white, almost blue; the 4000k is more neutral. In retrospect, I think I might have liked the 4000k better, to get a truer white.
