    hi guys,
    i'm a lawn/snow site guy but follow this forum too. i am doing the walls and patio at my own home. i am using the integral IL 6s to accent the wall under the caps. i'm using pecan holland stone and there wasn't a close match to any of the integral lights the material house had. after placing some under the caps i realize i didn't like the color or the gloss finish , especially as you come up the steps and can see the lights pretty well. i removed the cover plate, scuffed it up and mixed up some 5 minute epoxy ( cuz i was in a hurry) then i took some of the left over blocks and crushed them down to about sand size (some pieces were bigger but it's o.k) and sprinkled the stone over the wet epoxy. it turned out great. thought maybe it might help someone out,

    something else i'm noticing...the holland blocks are set back each row so i notice i need to pull the integeral light out farther to the front of the cap to get it to light down to the bottom row the way i like

    Thanks everyone. We have updated our code for the latest release of Internet Explorer 8. There should not be any issues with photos now. We are restructuring some of the pages, and adding new products in the next few days, so some of the site may not look right during this time.

    Thank you,

    Anthony
