You have details on the volt monitor panel?

Not much to it but it it does what I want it to do. Bought the AC and DC panel meters on ebay and cut a blank vinyl panel to mount them in. Checked the meters on my bench to make sure they were accurate. Added switches, grabbed the DC power off a nearby light and the AC from a nearby outlet.

Go to google and type in Bruce H Gallery. I have pics of my flat screen install. I used a 26" Samsung as it fit inside the TV housing. You will be able to see my info in the comment area.

Would you please post a source for those particular LED strips?

Thanks,

Go to Amazon.com and enter the following: SUPERNIGHT 5M 5630 SMD Super Bright Flexible LED Light Strip
Once you get that select the warm white color

LED strips

Razzman, do these strips get attached directly to 12v? They do not need anything else to hook up? Thanks

12vdc ready. No issues nor do they get real hot. Sticky tape sucks so replace before installing.

kitchen remodel

I've posted this in another forum but thought it is worth seeing as much as possible. I refinished our countertops with "Giani" countertop paint from CW and the results are stunning.Click image for larger version

This will probably explain better than I can.

COUNTERTOP PAINT - GianiGranite.com - Learn How

It wasn't difficult but due to drying times it took about 24 hours. I removed my countertops to do this but that was mostly due to the fact I wanted to use my router to round off the edges. It could be done in place without too much difference.
