A First Attempt was made with 12V lamps. Due to the heat dissipation the PVC cover becomes loose. So what worked for me was 5mm LEDS "Golden White" 2800 MCD [Conrad Reference N 18582320 GW], which gave warm tones and also was cool enough. See image below:
Of Course once done test it.
And there you go.
