Looking forward to seeing the LEDs in action. I thought I had an original idea in using the RGB strips - obviously not, since you're beating me to the execution! Can't wait to see the final results.

@ RensBerserker: thanks for the post. I am looking forward to it too. The great thing about this set, is that if I want, I can continue to add 16ft strips at will and potentially have the whole rooms lights controlled by one controller. (seems great for parties, holidays and such) I'll post pics of the whole process, but the finished keezer might take a while.

Ok, So I havent fully installed the lights, but below are a few pics of the different colors. We need to test them before we tile, to make sure the tile will still look good on the backsplash. Here ya go....

Oh, he has no keezer. He just wants to go through the whole thread and get to the end, where the project is done.

(We are in the process of converting an old fridge into a ferm chamber though. Unfortunately, the need has fallen off with the cooler temps. My ambient temps, with a straight water bath, seem to be good for temp control these days. But, when 100 °F shows up again in July, we'll be ready!)

I really like the recessed lighting that many coffin keezers have and want to use led’s because they won’t put off heat, they will last forever, and they don’t use much electricity. I also want to be able to change colors, must come as a package kit, and have dimming as well.

After researching on the net, I found a perfect kit on amazon.com. It’s a “16.4 Ft RGB Color Changing Kit with LED Flexible Strip, Controller + Remote and 12 Volt 4 Amp Power Supply By Ledwholesalers, 2034rgb Kit” sold by LEDwholesalers but fulfilled by amazon. That way I get free 2 day shipping with my amazon prime account!

It cost $55 even and will allow endless features, here are some of the things that it does:
Over 100 different colors including automatic fading and strobe functions
Dimmer on remote
16’ of led rope. With LED’s
30,000 hour lifespan
3m adhesive peel and stick tape
150 Multi color LED’s: one every ¾”
Cutable after every 4” then connect wire via connector clips to go around corners and such
Wireless remote to control every feature (no need for switch just always on consistent power supply)

So I plan on using this to light up my keezer 4 ways (all of which will be controlled simultaneously via the remote:
1. 30” recessed portion of the coffin
2. Recessed under the plywood lid pointing down on the wood that hides the chest freezer frame
3. Under the skirt on the bottom to give it a glow from underneath
4. Recessed behind a nice chalkboard that will be mounted to the wall above & behind the keezer

I am getting the kit on Tuesday, so I’ll be posting pictures soon!
Below I uploaded the generic pictures from amazon for ideas of what it can do.

As always, I love suggestions.. KEEP EM’ COMING!
Was this what you got? http://www.amazon.com/Flexible-LED-S...999745&sr=1-20

EDIT: Weird the link didn't show up in your original post, but only when I quoted it - http://www.amazon.com/Changing-LED-S...&s=electronics

@Jeebas: Thats really weird... when i posted it, i made sure the link was there.

anyways... yea thats the item, except the controller looks a little different (has more functions). But its made by ledwholesalers, but i think fulfilled by sunvalleytek. Seems they dropped the price a bit too!
