That looks awesome to use, easy to work with, and for the price it's cheaper than Mylar, i'd be interested to test both back to back on reflectivity and let everyone know how it fares!!!

Thanks MND123!!!!

Hey Keyaam, here it is with lights off - you will note as I said above that I left the plastic on till I am finished (have not wired in the last 2 ballasts - the birth of my beautiful daughter yesterday put the kybosh on that idea :)) but you get the general idea. I have giesemann actinic and 15000K thus far - think I will go lower (price) for the rest though!

Hey Crispin, the sheet was R270 for 1250x1000

I was going to go flat, but the waterproof endcaps that I had would not allow that, thus the reason for punching the holes in - thank heavens for Alanod, coz I could NEVER have done this with stainless steel!

See that they have clips to go THROUGH the metal - so I punched the holes as above and they slotted in

Whats cool is that my wiring can now run underneath the alanod, as I put it on them posts
