    Hey everyone.. its been a while since I posted in this side of the forum... A while back I read a thread about converting a regular line voltage light which we are going to mount on new hardscaping columns into 12v to hook into out transformer... I believe all I need to do it find new 12 bulbs to go in, and use the existing wires to the light correct?

    Thanks!

    Do these bulbs come in all or most base sizes? Also can I get them at any box store or are they more of a specialty thing? And what about the ground wire? Do I need to do anything with it?

    LV systems don't use a ground after the trans. there are 12v bulbs out there for most bases, but you need to go to bulb websites and find them. good luck.
