I will be interested to see how you make the housing. That is what's holding up my light panel. I think I have figured out a solution but I need to have the pieces sand blasted first.

What parts did you use, is it a full kit with on/off switch, etc. or did you get separate parts for that? I was wanting something nice, but easy to install, like a PCI bracket with the controls or such.
If you want, you can send me a PM as well. Thanks.
There are so many pages that show how to build the slightbox- just scroll back and read.

Can you post a picture here? I do not understand why are you sand blasting anything. Just planning on having a 3 side U channel frame with the 4th side open and no LEDs on the open side.

I'm having all of the metal in my build powder coated and the aluminum U-channel will have the same fate. However, you need to have the pieces sand-blasted before you can use JBWeld on them. The only solution I have come up with for attaching the pieces of U-channel together is to use JBWeld.

I am not using JBWeld between frame and STH10..they will have M3 bolts going through them with 2 mm nylon spacer under the lightbox and STH10. (for the horizontal one shown in the pitcure). The M3 bolt will go through the STH10 bottom compartment plate.
The vertical ligthbox (not shown) will have like a 10mm -15mm nylon spacer. But again M3 bolt going through the Slightbox Frame and acrylic at the same time.

The reason you need it separate..is because LEDs can burn out and you should be able to dismantle the whole thing. On top of that, for me the horizontal one will have bulk heads for piping to go through .

I am not sure about using JBweld for the corners of the frame to hold that in place (by iteself) at this time. I may have to...but not known as yet.

Interesting... I will be paying close attention to how this will be achieved. As for mine, I will be making a big U out of my U-channel that I can slide the acrylic pieces in and out of to change the LEDs if necessary.

I did edit my earlier response. But yeah--exactly...do the U with the U...is what I was thinking...If it will bend in the right place.

Are you planning to have your strip led on one side or multiple?

I tested out mine last night and it looks like I will have to figure out how to do LEDs on both sides. Mine is about 7 inches wide and the light from the LEDs doesn't move very far. It worked better when I put tin foil (nice idea from you!) but I don't think the tin foil was reflective enough so I'm going to get a piece of mirrored acrylic to put as the bottom.
