    Want to install some pixel strings as horizontal roof lines

    the garage roof is 22 feet wide and I have 12V Strips (30 LED 10 Chips per meter)

    thinking of putting them into PEX tubes

    a full strip is 16 feet and a bit so I need to add about 6 feet to a full strip to make one line

    starting at the lower left bottom to the right then back and so forth

    pex tubing is sold in 10 feet lengths

    as far as power injection I am guessing I will have to inject on both sides of the lines (22 feet approx. 190 LEDs)

    thinking of how to best cut both the strips and the pex to make this most painless including the storing later on.

    as far as the strips the easiest would be of course to use one full strip and then add a second part with about 6 feet

    any ideas and tips welcome

    pixel strips put inside pex tubing (for protection and also diffusion)
