Quoted from mollyspub:
My LOVE NEVER DIES is looking much better these days thanks to Comets matrixs system ![quoted image]
I did that too and love it. Photos an videos makes it look more orange-ish, but it’s blood red in person.
I actually have three strips total. Two LED strips behind the DRACULA in the translite and a strip adhered to the flasher board behind the love never dies. I find that putting them on the flasher board gives enough space so that only the letters light up and nothing around it.
Comet matrix are the perfect way to go, since I prefer static coloring, but mine happen to be standard LED remote strips off amazon and plugged into the service outlet. Power splitter plus an additional control box for the two locations, so the love never dies is on it’s own remote with red coloring, and the two behind the translite are on their own remote and usually on cool white with the alternate translite.
When I use the original translite I do a blue/green color fade for those two strips up there, and it made the clouds in the art go from blue to green, looks awesomely like green mist.
Another benefit I like about using strips in the service outlet is when my game is plugged in, the love never dies and DRACULA words along with his face stay lit and act as a night light in the game room. This setup works best if you have easy access to your power outlet. I unplug my games when not in use.
And I can’t recommend enough using two white comet matrix strips for under the big left ramp. Having the lightning bolt on the ramp completely backlit going up and around the bend of the ramp. Gone now are those two circular light spots. Again, looks great and probably can never go back.
