IKEA diode lights have changed so that the power cable enters through the side, making it very difficult to hide cable, so had to take mines back, can anyone recommend a reasonably priced set of spot lights for
My roof?

Thanks in advance

Check out maplins, only £20, they do warm white, bright white and colour changing. Had them in my t4 and they were really good. Will be fitting them to my t5 when I have got the roof done

I told my lad to get some from IKEA, then when I took them out of the package to fit...... bugger. What I've done is carpet a strip of old 3mm hardboard from the back and cut holes for the lights, they then sit flush and the wire is hidden, a bit of extra work but should look good once fitted.

Sorry for the crappy:eek: pics
Good idea, wish I had thought of that before I took them
Back !

Use the Ikea lights by removing the wiring plug an soldering the wires directly on to the back of the lights replicating the previous version. The Maplin lights are ok, but they are not as low profile as the ikea diode lights. Several sets done this way with no issues at all.
