5. attach power pigtail and RGB connector to the Decoder (my strip was BL,R,B,G). Use small wire strippers to strip RGB connector wires.
6. Drill hole in bottom of fixture and attach Decorder to back of fixture. Feed the RGB connector into fixture and glue down LED strip.

I made 2 horizontal light bars that I attached to the top of the 2×4 panels. I used two 1×2’s per panel to attach light bar at desired height.
