    Mounting Plates for E-Top P5 outdoor panels

    I hadn't had any luck - was going to rig something up with a bit of ply as a backing board and using the silicone seals as a template. Might have to have a look at these now - just need to find someone to print them for me :)

    Pixel Strip

    For the money you are better off buying locally from Troy at Extreme Lighting Displays: Currently $120 for 100m (which is $12 cheaper than Ray's listed price). Postage is quite reasonable.
