I personally would really like to see the process you went thru to put the lights in the nose, that is if you took pictures of the all the different steps. Also how you are forming the Plexiglass lens.

Landing gear strut and brake light is great when you are in only landing configuration.
It, however eliminates one of the advantages of lights (both in day and night) and that is when close to a busy airport illuminated and possibly alternating lights are one more thing that might catch the eye of other pilots in the air.
I originally thought about wheel pants but dismissed that because of vibration (possibly not applicable to LEDs) but also increased heat in the pant via the brakes reducing life..
Pods, if you have them would be great.
I am putting them in the nose and am about to mold the plexi. We will see how that comes out.
