    Hi all, I'm running late for getting my arches set up (rest of the display pretty much done). My original thought was to just grab some 20mm conduit and zip tie the strip to the top of it as an arch. Does anyone else have a better cheap/quick design that might be better? I love the look of PEX tube but it seems pretty much impossible to find in a semi opaque white here in Aus...

    Conduit is going to be your quickest cheapest easiest way.

    I would also use 25mm conduit as the 20mm is a bit to flexible and flimsy

    I used 25mm conduit, fast, easy to use and cheap.
