Well it was a looong weekend everyone. It always takes so much longer to do shit than it seems like it will take beforehand. I worked over 12 hrs both days on the shed over the weekend and again on mon for like ten. I still am not finished with everything and its now wed. oh well it will all be worth it.
So far Ive sealed the vents, added new holes for ac and lights, built the new veg/ mom box with 3 air cooled 400s, installed insulated ducting for the 1000s, removed carbon filter, hung the 1000s in thier new fixed position, and installed co2 generator.
First I started by removing all the lighting, ducting, and carbon filter, to make room for the work to be done. Then I built the veg box. Im not to great of a carpenter, so its just made out of 2x4s and plywood with plywood doors. It is 4 foot tall by 1 1/2 foot deep by 8 foot wide. In the end it turned out very strong and not to shabby all around. All three 400 ballasts sit on top of the box, along with the propane for the co2 generator [minigen], and the new 4" fan with black sewer pipe to light seal.
Heres what it looks like finished.

Maybe some of you noticed no minigen in the shed. Well thats a long story. I got it about 2 weeks ago and also ordered the ppm3 controller. The controller was supposed to get here on fri and never showed. I went in mon and it still wasnt there! I was pissed. The owner of my hydro shop was hella cool about it. He first offered me his co2 tank and regulator to borrow until it showed. Then on mon he said he would sell me the better c.a.p. model called fuzzy logic for his cost [the price I already paid + $70]. This was a great deal so I now have the bad ass controller.
So tues I go to set up my minigen and it wont light. I figured out that it was the on/off switch, and by passed it since the controller will turn it off anyway. This solved the problem and it lit immediatly. Then it just went "poof" and turned itself off well before the controller shut it off. This happened repeatedly. So Now today I sent the minigen back for repairs. DAMN IT!
So the co2 situation is nothin but problems so far, But Ill get it sorted out soon. I should have the unit back next week.

After dealing with this bull shit situation I continued on with the project. I hung the 1000s on a clothes rod acroos the top of the room. This will get them about 8" higher than before. I may not like not being able to lower them but last round every time I pulled them down it only hurt the plants anyway, so Im gonna try it out. I also put th fan inline to cool the lights and added insulated ducting.
Heres shots of the 1000s new setup.
Thats all so far. Co2 soon and still need to construct the rolling res and tray stand, but that should give everyone an idea of whats up for this run with the wonder woman. I also have two inline mufflers for the 4" fan and the ac. They are too loud right now. Those should arrive tomarrow. Man I love this shit! Peace.
Very clean quickrip!!
Nice job getting everything to fit.
Keep up the great work looking forward to the flowering.
And that last harvest looks freaking great bro !!! trichs are making those colas shine
Hope you dont mind but had some questions for your Quick.
how many girls did you have in flowering ?
around how tall or how long of veg, were they when you put them into flowering?
trying to get some numbers in my head, thinking about upgradeing to two 1000wats after a few grows

1000 watt heaven
[I love my 1000s they are all the lumens anyone could ask for and more! For the height switching to flower it really depends on strain and what your trying to accomplish. Also the method you choose. If sog almost no veg at all. if scrog much longer to fill the screen. If indica dom longer veg cause of less stretch in flower. If sativa dom you can veg less cause it will sometimes double or even triple in size after the flip. Im still learning how all this works myself so I hope this was some help to you hulk. Happy growing.
