    • Big J Illinois  »  BamaSanta

      Good morning , Big J here. We used a 2x4 grid , the MERRY part uses 48 foot rope lighting and the CHRIS used 18ft plus a 6 foot and the TMAS used a 18 ft . It's in 3 peices for storage ,simply zip tie the peices together and it would look like what u see. I used clear mini zip ties, UV stabilized. There are 3 plugs u have to connect. I am selling these for 225. Where are u located at? They are a little complicated to make, I put the ripe out idea to warm up in the sun for an hour or so, it makes them pliable,  and gets rid of the plasticy/vinyl smell. If u have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me Hope this helps
