I have a second set on order for under the first giving me a double row.
The one I have installed now is under the awning rail and the second one will be under the first on the wall.

Since the LED "sets" (the LEDs between the copper cut points) are wired in parallel I should be able to wire the second set right to the same wires as the first set.

If you are using the same power supply or fusing, make sure it is rated to handle the doubled load...

Did you use an adhesive, or exterior two sided tape to glue them on?

I did, due to the fact that even with cleaning the surface with alcohol the original adhesive did not hold after about 5 days. The 2 sided outdoor tape seems to be holding after 2 rains and a week+.

Thats great. I guess my next question would be, what did you use? Sorry in my line of work I use a lot of bolts...lol. Don't think the wife would like a series of 32mm bolts holding these on.

3m 2 sided tape
Should have red backing!
That's the good stuff!

To be fair, the original 3M tape seems to be holding up just fine for me.
1500 miles at highway speeds and several downpours later.
