I've found some on the Road Rage site and I'm must say I'm interested in doing a kit to save money and just for kicks. I actually like building my own stuff. I just wanted to know if anyone else offers them, and if anyone has tried a kit from Road Rage or anywhere else for that matter.

I don't think building a switch/loop is really worth the kit, but if you're needing that long (strip) enclosure it may be good a option.

The parts aren't rare and the build is very easy, which is why individually buying the parts may be a less-expensive choice.

The strip is the most expensive part. I can't find those sold by themselves anywhere. So that's why I'm looking for a kit...unless you've seen them some where?

I have no problem ordering my own parts, but a strip alone seems impossible to find.

Talk to this1smyne. He builds loopers and such, and has said that he has an excellent source for the strips.

Go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy an aluminum L about 3 feet long x 1" tall. Then buy a couple feet of the small 1/2" L.

Use a miter box to cut two pieces of each.

Then put the big L pieces together like so - L7 (I used a 7 but you get the idea).

Inside, mount the little L's in the top left and bottom right. Drill some holes through the large and small and screw them together. The little L's work as brackets to hold the pieces together. You could also mount the little L's on the outside, it looks slicker on the inside.

Lastly, take what is left of your small L and cut 4 little pieces. Get some metal or pleiglass and use these on the end - use 2 of the brackets on each side to hold these on.
