            I bought similar mini lights but none of them worked. . I think I must have just gotten a bad batch. I changed all the batteries, but still nothing. I'll try to exchange them. I think the above result is outstanding. Great job!

              Carbon fiber tape, I cut into strips and have a ton left over.

              Submerible lights were $14.99, 10 pack with 2 remotes, all batteries included. You have to turn hard on the lights since submersible and they need tight seal to trigger the batteries. All batteries included. Truthfully when batteries die I may order another pack due to price of batteries, it would be cheaper than replacing.

              It literally took 10 minutes start to finish.

              Good luck.

                  Wow! Thanks for the tip about screwing the lights down hard. That got 7 of the 10 to work. I may just have to play with the others. I only plan to install 3 like you did. Another great time and money saving tip. Much appreciated

                    Just a heads up, C808 let me know that you can buy these batteries in bulk from Tractor Supply Company. I got a large multipack for $8.

                      Or eBay, batteries are pretty inexpensive there. I have lots of different sizes as I get multipacks of whatever I need for $3-$4.
