rope light install. Sun, 09/30/12 10:47 AM (permalink)
Has anyone on here ever install rope lights on truck or trailer all the way around it? If so how did you mount them on to The truck?? Looked all over the forum but did not find any info. Thank you for any help in advance.

      What about using double faced automotive tape? They use it to put trim pieces on auto's.
      I've installed round rope lights on a trailer by using clear plastic that is used to hang 1/2" pvc pipe. I used the trailer screws to hold them.

            Here is a link to plastic hanger. http://www.menards.com/ma...h/p-1460576-c-6448.htm
            The ones in the link I think are white, but in my workshop I have some clear ones. May have got the clear hangers at a true value store.
            The auto tape I am talking about is 3m brand and I got mine at O'reillys auto parts. It's the same stuff used  by car makers  to stick exterior trim pieces on cars. The trim stays on cars for years. I think I paid about $10 for a roll. Look up 3m double faced auto tape and you can see if it will work for you.

              I don't think I have a true value anywhere close to me. I have a harbor freight they might have them. I think your idea will work. Going to find some of the stuff today and see how it works out.

                electrical clasps would work, or plumbing pipe holders
