  1. Did you send my display couple years ago, they lasted one season were kind of sim would not bother with them again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Despite the fact I don't have time for, I started tutoring it apart and reassembling it using LEDs. I'm very happy with the results so far Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I've been using strobes from Christmas light show and been very happy with them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Just wait till to go to your local hardware store and buy a few thousand dollars worth of extension cords! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I was planning on color coding the lights, I played with just wrapping lights but the green wire looked like poop! How would you go about color coding the wire? Glad to hear the walmart garland will work, wife was unemployed most of this year so I don't have much of a budget. Thanks for your ideas. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. After looking out for just a couple of minutes it appears the garland wrapped. it's a double wireframe and it appears both sides are wrapped, and then the ends are zip tied. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Hope seems pretty slim, they are very old units the bulbs are falling out Of the sockets every time I touch it. And to make matters more complicated the bulbs are actually inside of the garlands you can't see them, you have to feel your way through to find the locations. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. I just found these two wireframes today, not one of the existing strands of lights work. I would like to try the get them read lips before Christmas, what do you think do I need to take off the Garland or can I doing overwrap. If I need to take off the Garland has anyone successfully done this before I'm assuming these are probably 20+ years old they don't show much where deterioration but I'm willing to bet the Garland this weak and will probably require replacement. Which is my next question where can I find an outdoor rated Garland? Thanks for your advice and help Sent from my iPhone u
  9. I have a wire frame with sealed LEDs, half of it died on me so I dot the led keeper, and found the problem bulb. My problem now is the LEDs have 3 wires going into the socket, the instructions do not address this. I assume with a multimeter I can figure out which 2 wires need to be together, but I dont quite know what I am looking for, an help?
  10. In my experience c9 incandescent will melt an artificial tree. Could the lights at the mall have been c9 LED ?
  11. I need to find one locally, about half of my LEDs have issues. I did not see them at my Menards, we're they in the Christmas section?
  12. I would guess I brighter projector would help. I personal use a 3000 lumen projector now, I started with an old 800 lumen and there's a real diffreance in the viewabily from the road.
  13. Wish I could they say they are not valid if coppied, they only sent me 3
  14. My electric coop put out ge coupons this year.
  15. My electric co-op just sent me 3 GE LED coupons, sadly reproduction are not accepted
