  4. Just about done. I took off all last week because I had vacation to burn and was well used getting everything ready.. Had a lot of rain the past two days but that actually helped find any wet plugs before it all actually goes on.

  8. When I get anything new that's plastic or rubber, the FIRST thing I do is coat it with Armor All. That's what AA is for, UV protection on cars and it works. Then a wipe down with an AA rag after the season, and a new spray on coat every other year or so and they last forever.

  10. I used UV spray paint for about 10years. It’s work well for me. Its hard to tell if it work’s because it clear. They only way I can tell is I missed spraying UV paint on a few molds about 8 years ago and I could tell a difference after a few years of use. Tips that have worked for me. If I repainted a blow mold I spray it down about week after with UV spray paint. Never mix different brands of spray paint they will run together. Also only put 1-2 coats on a blow mold of UV spray paint any more and I have found it does not look as good. To me the gloss works great and brings back some life to a

  11. PC Controllers with the plastic enclosures have a limit of 8 amps/channel and 15 amps/power feed cord (one feed does channels 1-8, the other 9-16) Consider also that and individual home circuit can only handle 15-20 amps, with a 75% or 80% max usage being ideal as stated above. Depending on your usage you may be able to put both controller feeds on the same circuit. If you use a lot of amps, you may have to separate the feeds to different circuits. I highly suggest the Kil-A-Watt meter as well.

  12. Well I don't know how to turn on all the lights at the same time so I did the best I could and tried to time it right on a sequence. Didn't get the whole mega lit up lol. And that is Roscoe in the foreground. He doesn't know what to think of this stuff lol.

  13. I was just reading through some old post, so you may have an answer for this post already. LED bulbs have a bit of a different description. An Example a 100 watt incandescent is a lot brighter than a 60 watt incandescent bulb. Now the LED's you need to read the "K" factor. the higher the " K" the more white the light is, The lower the K the more orange it is. Okay, with that being said and since it is inside a blow mold, I have noticed that the high 5000/6000 K works the best. Hope this helps

  16. I tried to slide him over a bit and my hand went through him. Old brittle plastic, Im always careful but evidently not careful enough this time. When I have time I will try to use some super glue and doctor him up a bit. If that don't work it looks like I will have some spare parts for the other one.
