    Looks good to me! A few recommendations I have are:

    1. add mylar to the inside of the insulation. Will help with the light. Mylar is 100x better then foil!
    2. Put a floor in it. I make a mess with water and soil and LFS all over the place! It will help the clean up in the long run.
    3. More light! More light never hurt anything! You can mount fluorescent light just about anywhere.

    Hey thanks! I pride myself on my handyness in a rush. Not to shabby for misc. items laying around in the tool sheds out back huh? Believe me, I ask plenty of questions. I know some people are already getting sick of me.

    1. I'll pick some up at Lowe's on Saturday. Never heard of it, so I'm pretty sure I don't have any.
    2. Good thinking.. thanks!
    3. The first paragraph of this thread says that I bought the last 2 fixtures they had. I'm getting more at a different store on Sat.

    Thanks for the advice. Keep it coming..

    Yeah I ment even more light! In addition to the two on top. You can mount most light on the sides too.
    Or upgrade to a T5 or better. Your plants will love you!

    LOL.. I know bro. I went out to buy 4 all together. But they only had 2 left. So it's the best I could do until I can get into the big city on Saturday. But we're on the same page. And the sides are glass. I don't know how I could mount lights there..

    OMG... I'm retarded. When you said "sides", I was thinking just that. As opposed to "front & back". But I'm a big enough man to say," Frilleon, your right and I'm wrong."
