    I could... but I'd have to cut them into 1 meter segments.

    Or alternatively put it on a cargo ship and then you're looking at ~$1000 shipping... WHICH, if you want to buy 20 roles of it and resell, may not actually be that bad.

    Not for a decent price that is.
    2000mm isn't a problem. But 2500mm is.

    Could I make the inside of a tube frosted/opal myself?

    Chemicals maybe?
    naptha mixed with white plasti dip will frost the inside .

    Anyone any experience with satin tubes? Instead if opal colour? Opal has 34% translucency (opacity) and satin has 77-80%
    Manufacturer said it should disperse light correctly and dense enough to not see the ledstrip from the outside.

    Or was it serious?

    Would it work with terpentine and white plasti dip?

    And add xylene thinner?

    Then just pour it into the tube?

    Pixel density and distancing away from the surface to be illuminated can reduce visibility .

    Xylene and Toluene may work also but quite harmful to one's health .

    Would advise you to Check MSDS prior to using > all above .

    Just looks better imho.

    Trying to figure out different solution.
    Would be neat when I could make transparant regular pvc tube, opal.
    Your HD/Lowes doesn't carry PEX?
