All around awesome display.
    I hope my duck tape than hold those power packs longer, or I have to nail them on the wall too. And eventually I have enough space on the right side for a third set of pax. But right now I reserve that space for my table so I can assemble all my Gundam and zoids models during night after my daughter fall asleep. LoL

Cause you know it's impossible to move these anymore.

    Make sure remove those protection films at last, so you don't have to spend whole day clean your figure prints.

    Each shelf is about 28-29 inch tall. Big enough for any PF.

    Try to keep those wires as clean as possible Attachment 141657
    Hide a switch on bottom to turn on and off all lights.

    Make sure get these wire organizer from ikea which make the entire setup much nicer and cleaner. And glue these to each shelves but not the side panel! So when you want to change the shelf hight later they won't annoying you.

    Yup, and here's the link

    PAX Pair of sliding door frames & rail, aluminum - aluminum - 59x92 7/8 " - IKEA

    You just buy the sliding door frame without the panel and go cut your own acrylic glass.

    Idk about your experience, but putting the acrylic panels in those frames was a royal PITA for me.

    The biggest pain for me is that the acrylic gets very statically charged when the masking is peeled off. So, when I slid the panel into the frame, it picked up every spec if dust/hair/carpet fibre on the floor! I kept getting stuff stuck between the frame and panel...it was a bit if a pain, if I'm honest.

    Same here, and I put down a huge painter's clear plastic tarp, still had the same problem.

    My solutions is don't peel off the protection sheet on the acrylic panel until you finish the entire installation. Never do it on the floor cause YES it became super statically will pick up every single dust on your floor.
    I keep the protection film on the panel even when I'm installing door to the frame.

    I had that tip mostly written up earlier and then I said, f-it, these guys are all already finished - and promptly had to get back to the discounts/codes thread.

    Yes, but with the Auli frames I used, you have to peel off the bit of masking around the edges (about 3" all around), otherwise it'll be stuck between the frame and the back side of the panel and you'd never get it out. Also, I was doing this by myself, so I had no choice but to lay it on the floor.
