    I used a compression "F" connector for RG6 coax wire. I drilled a hole slightly smaller and hammered it into my wooden jig.

    You attached the j- channel to PVC frame for around your windows? Last I made PVC frames for my door and windows and zip tied the pixels to that but couldn't get all the pixels to stay straight. I am planning on mounting them in j - channel this year for straight lines around everything. I was going to see if I can do without the PVC frames and attach the j - channel right to the house (I have old aluminum siding that might get replaced next year anyway).

    Yes, I zip tied them but I had problems with the J-Channel sliding around on the PVC pipe. So I put some self tapping screws into the slots on the J-Channel and screwed them into the PVC to keep it from sliding around. Worked well.

    I thought I would share a picture of my installation using J channel. I am quite pleased with the results. The plastic J channel is held up with a combination of magnets for the top of the garage door, brick clips for the verticals, and aluminum J channel pivoted into the soffit.

    Very nice! I just started drilling holes the other night, still need to install all the pixels in them. Already worked out how I'm attaching them around my windows and door. Everything looks cleaner in straight lines :-D

    Are those on 2" centers? (If you said it earlier, I didn't see it.)

    To close on this thread, I finally have the house outline lit up for Halloween. Here is an image of what 1.5 centers look like from the street (about 30 away)

    Here's mine using jchannel. Only different is that my lights are facing the house to have the wall wash effect
