As title, heard of folk sqeezing them into oblong shapes in cupboards but worried mine may be a bit too small.

cheers 4 any replies.

Edit: and could I bend it back again down the line for use in a better space or is it fucked once u bend it?

cheers

If you can't get it to fit that space dude, you can just use the centre section for a vertical bulb hanger :)

It would just fit, my cupboard is 58cmX95 if I remember correctly.

Defo worth it, this was a 2 plant ScroG in there. That all you need, 400w would be sound.

All you do is construct as normal then fold into itself like a pasta shell/rugby ball shape. When it opens back up it will fit in nicely. There is better pics of that closet in my Killerksunk 6-in-1 diary where you can see all the closet but I'm on iPad and linking pics is crap hence the link above and not the actual pic...

Regards bending it back you woud have to take it to prices and flatten them back out again. It wouldnt be perfect though!

Theres a widescreen pic attached to that post matey (post334), by taking the bent panels off and flattening them they would be sound again.

With a ScroG you want about 12-18" as normal depending on bulb. 400w is ample in that space and therefore 12" is sound.

The bulb is about only 4" or so from the top so not a lot. :yinyang:

You can clearly see the top sections of the Paraboics here. The E40 holder is actually in the top section...

Budlaire, would you be able to do the same with the 80cm para hood into a DR60. 60cm x 60cm x 160cm.

I was thinking build the hood as normal. The nuts were the plates join one another at the edges, i could use string and attach it from one side to the other and this would bend it inwards.

Made a rough drawing.

Cheers
