Finally! I've completed my sidewalk arch. Thanks to both TK421 and litemareb4xmas. Your ideas and suggestions helped it all come together for me. The lamps on the front of the columns have flicker bulbs and the gargoyles on top have red bead eyes lit by white L.E.D.'s from behind. The green light comes from a string of C-9's built into the column tops, but out of site. The arch light flickers like it's burning out. Now before anybody says it I'll be the first...."It needs a gate". Next year. As of now I've exhausted both my halloween allowance and my spouse's patience for "side projects". I have posted a history of the project in my albums for anyone who's interested.
