So this is my first year and wondering if anyone had any suggestions for attaching PVC to tiles? I plan to attach lights using boscoyo trim on PVC pipe for quick snap/remove which I'll be doing on the rest of the roof lining. Since there are so many lightning genius on here, figure I'd see what you all could suggest.

My first and only decent thought is screwing these conduit clips:

Otherwise you could get a bracket to slide under those corner tiles.
I think @djgra79 has something similar for mounting items on top of the roof.

I used cable tie mounts. This example shows vertical strip (now nodes) attached to garage wall but same system used for the rooflines on the roof tiles:
View media item 1150These are the cable tie mounts I used that are siliconed in place before being used. Make sure to remove the sticky backing first as they are useless.

I was thinking more about the mounts on your new coro sleigh at the base (you showed on Zoom a few days ago).
Cable ties mounts are better though. I had forgotten about those things.
