    Lets see your DIY light solutions!

    The 20g I got at the auction is cleaned, rimless, amd getting sealed this week. I'm brainstorming lighting now.

    I'm cheap, and already know the light I'm going to use, but it's basically a square puck with a cord, and I have to figure out how to suspend it.

    Mind posting pictures of your lights?

    Or maybe i should jist see if i can get a light at the next auction lol..

    I have used those puck lights quite a bit. I still do.

    They have a metal frame with 3 holes in the top and the puck sort of cradles inside of it, right?

    If you have any sort of canopy, you can screw the cradle into it, or, you can use the double sided spongy tape from gorilla or loctite and cut enough fine strips (usually takes about 5 pieces) and it will stay there solid.

    Just put a heavy book on it for a coupple hours or so to make sure that it gets a good seal if you go the tape route.
