    I'm experimenting with different led light spacing. Don't know if I'll have anything up soon.

    Okay I might as will show you what I'm working on.

    The lights on the left are spaced 1-1/2" apart the lights on the right are spaced 1" apart top and bottom, 4" in the center.
    (I'm leaning towards the left side)

    I'm adding a ball in the center that I will cover with aluminum foil to reflect light or I'll wrap it with more lights.

    After trying about 10 different ways to mount the lights, I have settled upon this.

    Spacing is about 1-1/2" with the black plastic flexible mesh.
    I will tuck the wires in on the back side once mounted to the frame.
    I'm manufacturing the top and bottom point strings first and will take another picture once I get them mounted.

    Your hand will hurt after installing that many zip ties! I've been wondering why I haven't invested in one of those automatic zip tie guns.
