    The hex are great looking, but wouldn't it take a lot of work removing each hex if you remove them? If it's like utility boxes, it'd leave a couple jagged pieces behind in each hex. Maybe you could contact a metal working company and have them use their water cutting machine to make similar?

    That makes sense. I assume you'd point the openings towards the rear of the car? I was at the auto parts store on Friday and chatted with a guy who had hood vents. He'd used his printer to make up some boxes for the underside to catch rain and divert it away from the engine... sort of like hood scoops mounted on the underside of his vents. He said he got tired of water on his engine.

    I finished the upper cabinets, but wanted to add under counter lighting. There were some reasonable units available but it didn't feel safe running 110V thru the cupboards. I'm just wrapping up the last of my home-built units.

    1.jpg
    I bought a roll of 24V LEDs, a transformer and LED channel strip. Each new light can be removed from the circuit if/when one fails by simply unplugging and reconnecting to the power line (speaker wire). The touch pad was a nice addition. It's mounted on the end cabinet and it glows when the lights are off, making it easy to locate in the dark. Hold the button for 3 seconds to vary from full light or down to 10% illumination. It's a lot of work but the custom fit (length) is worth the effort.

    We had a power outage... someone hit a power pole. When power was restored, they lit the kitchen letting me know power was back on. That's a nice touch. We seldom see power fail but the last 2 years has seen several, between accidents and the nearby forest fires.

    On our new house. The whole home has nothing but LED lighting though out. 110 volt wiring and switched under the upper kitchen cabinets. Led lighting underneath. Battery backup elevator, garage door opener. The whole home, has smart switches, and outdoor WiFi camera’s. All my homes in the past have had underground Utilities.

    We thought about solar panels, and a Generac‘s back up battery supply. My oven, garage door opener, lighting, is all WiFi operated.

    Sounds like a neat set-up. It reminds me I've never really done any "mods" to my house other than repairing stuff that broke.

    That's the advantage of owning a home that isn't 43 years old. <g> I upgraded to efficient lighting, then to LEDs as each tech became available but under counter is a new install. I was told I'd need to run a new circuit and run wires in armored casing for under counter... thus switching to 24V. When I retired I considered buying a new home, but this old one was paid off in 2004 and only uses $40 to $80 in electricity (including heat) during the winter. (Some the varying use is heat in the dog/plant room.)

    Some mods work out, others don't. For instance, I installed a super efficient water heater. It was great for about 8 years before it ruptured. Part way into the latest install, I was testing the amount of light put out, so this photo is lit only by the under counter. Imagine if your wife walked into this scene. Dishes are out of 2 of the cupboards, wire clippings and sawdust spread everywhere. Obviously, I clean up most of it each evening, but this went on for a week.
