Still gluing

Got the two back (long) outside seams left to do after the outside end seams dry. Fixing to cut the support pieces to hold the light sockets, and mount them, and then I can wire all 4 sockets together on a switched wire. Or that’s the plan. Need to check the current rating on the inline switches. With 4 75 watt (at 130 volts) bulbs that’ll be max of 300 watts. Doing a bit of figuring seems the bulbs will pull .58 amps and will put out about 70 watts at 120 volts, so that will be a total of 2.32 amps. Still need to check the switches but I think they are good to 2.5 amps. Off to cut wood and find wire and other bits.
