    Hi all, after I completed my first display (Details contained here https://auschristmaslighting.com/th...ve-lights-overall-display-build-part-1.10923/) I had a few items I wanted to update / modify from lessons learnt during last year.

    I did a bit of review video here of my 2018 Display Layout

    Im not 100% sure if I going to complete everyone I mentioned in the video which I mentioned.

    Here was my 2018 layout

    1. Moving Flood lights from Centre Garden Bed to use with existing Flood Lights against house walls and add Flood Lights to wash against side fences.

    2. Moving Mini Trees from side fence to in the front part of yard so they are all facing outwards towards the viewing audience (I need to to a couple of things for this to happen first, stay tuned).

    3. Deleting the Centre Garden Bed outline, it was a bit time consuming to set up and decided to just delete it.

    4 . Re-positon ChromaFlakes on side Fences to angle them more towards the viewing audience.

    5 . Tweak MegaTree by possibly increasing Megatree base diameter and attach Star to Topper.

    6 . Add something to centre of Display in front Centre Garden Bed Tree (and no before anybody comments I don't want to chop the tree down :) )

    7. Move Star from above Doorway as above tree blocks view of it

    8. Update Donation Box - Youtube Video Here of this

    Still a needs some tweaks but should work ok, not sure how effective it will be, but like most things time will tell.

    9. Not sure about anything else, but no doubt something will pop up etc

    Re: 4. ChromaFlakes, last year I simply cable tied them flat against the fence, but wanted to angle towards viewing audience so I thought I would try something like this bracket made out of some conduit and T pieces.
