First off many thanks to folks on here for so much info and chats .
With that I already had my roof line lights up so figured I would do a test run for the 4th just to see what issues I would run into.
First I had a few minor patching issues got it fixed . Was short a cable or two made up quickly and all good . Realized I made window light spacing 2” not 3” had to redo quickly . Had some directional flow issues fixed not sure how lol .
So here’s the test run for those who helped me again a big thanks !
No audio just wanted to run the colors.

Are you going to keep your lights up year round? May I see how you mounted yours? I'm still planning that part...

Yes except for the windows they come down but roofline has been up since January.

I use stainless steel staples on the inside and a few on the bottom for added support.

I don’t have a drill press so everything was measured out 3” spacing and hand drilled and don’t take too long to do goes rather quickly . I used same j bead for my spiral trees aswell it seems pretty tough https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200706/25ff81153ecdd62b0552772663080f46.jpg

Thanks! I bought a piece of j channel to test out. Doesn't seem to be a good way to mount it to my house, so I'm thinking I might do 1 inch pvc and use clips to mount to gutters and shingles. We'll see. I haven't actually ordered all of my pixels yet, so I might be waiting another year...

Here’s something new that I like but not sure if I’ll buy maybe will work for you

Would like to do that but our HOA won't let us keep anything up past January. :hmm:

Same with my HOA but the way I have them set up you can’t really see them so they will stay and have neighbors wanting to do the same lol
