after unloading the car and doing other errands the rest of the day... I did some more thinking about the hanging portion of the project. checked out some threads from Brian and Spooln, did a few searches for other people's ideas.
Back to homedepot ~9:50pm.
After dinner and hanging out with the misses.
With a few drinks in me. I decided to start the light project.
note: small ass city apartment.
Here's my solution for the hanging.
Notice the nut on the hooks. They can pivot
A total shot in the dark, found some hooks that fit the Ray2's leg slots.
Not very happy with the wire and the stupid furrels? (clamps for the loops) I think I will try to hang it with clear fishing line instead for a cleaner look.
need to clean up the wiring and stuff... purple extension cord is temporary until I figure out my aquarium controller situation...
The project took maybe a little over an hour. Very easy project. The bending isn't all that bad. Just need to know how to use the markings on the bender. This is proof you don't need any power tools! You can get a $4 hacksaw and cut the conduit!
Project cost was around $20 bucks. That's including the hacksaw which I will keep around for other things. Bender cost wasn't included as I borrowed it from the store
planted the new stuff too
