    I paid £6.99 for 5 metres of this (now £6.59) I only used 2 metres but might do both sides of the curtain track yet.

    We never use the cab curtain but still could if needed. This lighting strip is only 8mm in width so fits in the curtain track easily.

    Connected through one of these Chinese dimmer modules with RF remote.

    That looks interesting but can it just be powered direct from a 12v supply instead of the 240v tranny?
    Also, how do you shorten the length without losing the circuit?

    It is a 12 volt supply. NO TRANNY :roflmto:
    It is a 12/24volt dimmer
    The scissor marks can be seen in the first picture (every third LED)
