Do It Yourself projects
Allot has been done since my last update and I’m happy to say the light is working! And hanging!
I made my black acrylic housings what allow for a piece of glass to slide in, this will protect from spray and splashing.
I used U channel aluminum to attach the 2 units together and hung it with my existing hanging kit from my old fixture.
