Light Suggestions

A couple of projects beginning.

I building a hard dodger and want a red/white LED light and fixture that is water resistant exterior grade to place over the companion way.

Installing refrigeration in 2 boxes and looking for a low wattage light to place inside the boxes with a switch to opening lids.

Your suggestions would be appreciated.

Heading down to Ensenada for a delivery back on Thursday.

Re: Light Suggestions

For the first one i might consider using a headlamp and some Velcro. You can get them with a combination red/white and they are sealed. It also offers the convenience of removing the light should you need to grab it quickly.

Re: Light Suggestions

I would use LED strip lighting inside the fridge boxes. The strip could be slid into clear vinyl tubing if you want more waterproofing.
