    Default Diy C9 retro covers for bullet style pixels

    I picked up some Led strings during the black friday sales with the idea of modifying
    there facetted covers to use on some bullet pixels .

    I would like to return to the retro look , eventually all my pixels will have covers of one Diy type or another

    Next up , a new system of covering the window trim pixel strings .

    You might be better just getting the C7/C9 strings (pixabulbs, brilliant bulbs, etc), instead of converting bullets.

    I can't see how any of those would be better than the tls 3001's that I use .

    Youíre sliding that green base over a snipped bullet node. How will they work on a full string?

    As / per the thread title Diy C9

    I have a few thousand bullets that are cut in various lengths & begging to be used !

    Stay tuned for some outside of the status quo customizations .

    How well does that bullet actually illuminate that clear/smooth bulb-cover? Thatís one benefit of using a faceted (or frosted) build instead of a clear/smooth one.

    Textured C9

    These can be modified easily for uncut pixel strings as they are threaded .

    How does the green base slip on? Over the top?
