3/4" PVC couplers and caps were purchased. Two of the four couplers were trimmed down by 1/2" (12mm) on each side to expose more of the pipe and allow for more adjusting. One coupler was cut at an angle on one side to give it a hooded look. This was done for aesthetics more than utility. The cut end was sanded to smooth the edges. Small rings were cut from the PVC pipe to act as lens holders in the couplers. The caps were drilled with a 1/4" (5mm) bit. The caps had a thinner end but were rounded. The flat end will likely be the better choice for lining up the IRLEDs. The couplers were were not shortened were drilled and tapped to 1/4-20 threads.
