    Cabin LED rope light install 32xx

    Just finished installing LED color changing lighting inside the cabin. I removed the old fluorescent lights.
    I mounted 1/2" aluminum flat stock and used 10mm double sided adhesive. The led lights already come with adhesive tape but I removed it because it is cheap and doesn't stick too well. I used the aluminum to span the gap the fluorescent lights left. Plus the double sided foam tape sticks better to the aluminum than the tiny and other boat materials. The lights are inexpensive, color changing and dimmable.

    We also went with RGBW SOFT white LED strips, dimmable, remote controlled...
    loving the indirect subtle lighting .

      Joon,
      did you use a dimmer? Is the color of the led lights similar to the stock rope lights when they are dimmed?

        The dimmer is built into the remote control. Color stays the same as they are dimmed.
