    Coroplast is just a brand name of corrugated plastic sheets. Just like cardboard, but made of plastic. Very light wieght, rigid and easy to work with. Comes in 4x8 sheets. Cost for a sheet is between $15-20. Home depot definitely carries white and translucent. Some may carry other colors like black, etc. ScottyMo
  5. I apologize. I thought I had taken pictures of the light bars before I installed them. Must have forgot. I took some pictures of them on the house. They should give you the idea. I started by building a wooden frame. 1x6 back with 1x2 sides. Each unit is 8 feet long. I then fastened the modules every 1.5 inches. Giving me a total of 8 modules per foot. Each 1 foot section of 8 modules is wired together occupying 1 channel. There is a total of 46 feet across the front of the house. Giving a total of 1840 leds. (5 leds per module) The front covers are simply made from translucent coroplast Here are the modules inside the light bars… Here is what the house looks like during the day… Closer look of the light bar… Side view close up… ScottyMo
  6. Well done! I really like the light wheel. ScottyMo

    For the windows on my Garage doors, I just covered them with black bristol board. Cheap and easy. For the windows in side, I cut pieces of black coroplast to fit each window. That way I can easily remove them during the day, and just pop them on before the show starts. On one of these coroplast window covers, I cut a hinged window so I can peek outside anytime. ScottyMo

    RGB Flickers

    Yes. As Kevin said, cutting the RGB dumb strips in easy as long as they are cut at the pre-determined intervals. (every 3 LEDs). The 20 strips I used in my display are ALL cut. My longest run is 10 feet. Before I bought my strips, I made sure that they had connecters at both ends of the strip (some come wthl connecters at one end only). That way I didn't have to do any soldering. (I SUCK at soldering!). My average run is 8 feet long, so after cutting my 16 foot strip in half, both resulting 8 foot lengths had connecters by default. And since they are dumb strips, it does not matter from what end the input power is attached. ScottyMo
  10. The RGB strips are all dumbs strips. I did not use any CCR or smart strips. The bright white lights also are not CCR or smart strips. They are something I made using Piranha leds. I'll try to put together and post a behind the scenes looks at them. ScottyMo
  11. Finally got around to creating 2 more videos. I Got a Feeling... Thriller... ScottyMo
  12. No. You cannot use standard light strings with the 27 channel dmx controllers. These controllers are capable of 12 to 24 volts. I am operating 12v rgb dumb strips with them. The standard light strings you buy at home depot etc, are 110v. ScottyMo
