Do any of you know where I can find reasonable fiber optic? I have found a seller on eBay with 175 feet of it but they are out of purple. Which that could change by the time I get to the paint job. I prefer a wide color spectrum so it will make my choice a little easier when it comes down to putting these lights in.

Yea that's the guy, he doesn't have the color I want right now. Which I may go ahead and buy the others.

I want to stay as clean as possible in doing this so I want to stay away from tinting.

Does it come in multiple colors? The only fiber optic that I've seen put in the ground or in buildings was clear.

Michael I will have to let you know later. I'm still indecisive about the color cause I may go with green since its an easier color to find in LEDs.
