drilling holes blind.
lets hope I don't hit a water line, or worse yet, the gas line.

I used to work 12 hour shifts, days then nights, I decided to have a bath after waking up after a night shift.
Walked in to the bathroom and the one floorboard that squeaked squeaked at me, stood on the board to find where it squeaked and drove a 2 inch screw straight through into the cold water supply pipe! :rolleyes:

Stud finder with electrical alert would be helpful here for sure. I personally wouldn't hang a light in an eye bolt in a toggle only supported by sheetrock above but I also have 3 kids in my house that are at the age where their brains take a half decade off!

Gotta love pre/teenager years.

And now I know how I’m going to do my eventual frag system. And like a genius I just realized I can use my garage for it....

Following along my guy!

Anyone heard from Mike....it’s been almost an hour
MIKE...still with us ???
2hrs now :oops:
I survived.
no sheet rock. I hung foam board to cover all the pipes. humidity in the summer makes the pipes drip.
mounting in to 2x4's but had to add some to clear the pipes which meant taking down one sheet of foam board.
which meant going back to home depot for new fasteners. stripped the "stars" taking them out.
only had one scary moment when a copper pipe moved vertical about 3/4".
said pipe is plumbed to the baseboard heat in the kitchen directly above. nothing leaking. yea.
so here it be.

I started mine on one of the recommended from the site for mixed reef, then tweaked it into a mix of that and the brs specs. You got this!

a local reefer, who has the same light, is coming over to raid my DT next weekend.
this means no need to read directions. :cool:
