Well the strips finally arrived today so I blew off work and spent the afternoon slamming them in place. Really happy with finished look. Here's a couple of pics. Keep in mind it's broad daylight so the pics don't do them justice.
Cheers

They look great Jukesy. Is it one continuous strip and how/where is the power connected? I might have another project now...

The strip came in 16' lengths I so needed two but are connected together. I ran power from the panel through the engine room and up the port side plenum. I installed a switch by the aft door next to the others. Was a fairly easy and straight forward install. Cheap too thanks to Oliver.

Juksey - which ones did you order? Our NT has similar valances and I've been thinking of putting up some leds. A friend picked us up a set from Costco last year, but I wound up putting those under the cabinets in our kitchen at home.

Ooh, shouldn't have done that. Save the end flap or other piece that has the part number on it or copy all the nomenclature into a log for future maintenance needs.

Looks nice, thanks for the link. Just ordered one for myself. I'm going to use it in the house, not on the boat. Got a bunch of old wall-warts in the workshop, so will just find one which will deliver 12V and the proper amperage.

I went with these ones. There warm white. No transformer just wired directly to 12v.

Good point Rick. Hadn't thought of that. It's not a permanent switch but all I could find for now. I specifically wanted a surface mount which mine is but wanted something closer to matching my existing switches.

Ok so ive been looking around at other alternatives to compare to our current LED's. I found Harbor LED which is a manufacturer in china, they sent me their catalogue and have quite the selection. After a trading a few emails i asked him about constant current protection, he said they don't have them but he can add CC protection. Just thought id share.

Oliver,

I'm very interested in looking at these catalogs but the first file says it's "damaged" and can't be opened. Can you PM it to me?
