looking for advice on rain gutter DIY lighting
I found this thread while researching this project, Help with DIY Lighting
Does anyone happen to know of a video that covers this project or something similar? I have to say I like the idea and the look of the finished project, but I have never wired anything before. I have found myself doing simple "man" projects around the home, like replacing faucets and pipes etc, but never anything electrical. I am interested because I have a 36" wide 42 gallon bowfront that was given to us with a 30" single tube light fixture, and this is just not enough lighting. I am adding live plants and need something stronger. I currently went out and purchased 2 bayco clamp lights, 8.5". I don't care for them to sit on top of the glass, so I am looking at my alternatives. If I were to proceed with the materials that I have, would I be able to use the sockets from the clamp lights, or will they be useless for this? If anyone has advice, I am all ears. I learn quick but I am a visual learner more than anything, pictures are good but sometimes I need to see the actions to get it....
Thanks in advance for any input
