So here is the wiring diagram and parts list

The resistors are there to easily measure the amps since this is a parallel design.
Fuses are in for "o ****" protection
Terminal blocks for ease of wiring

Doing this setup doesnt really give me plug in play modules but rather a full 72in fixture.

Resistors x 12: $1.05 ea

1A Fuses x 12 (for Royal Blues): These are 1A. And could be used in most cases in 700ma up to maybe 900mA setups. $0.83 ea

1.5A Fuses x 12 (for Cool Whites): could be used in most cases in 1.2A up to maybe 1.4A setups. $0.83 ea

*I might buy this locally and order the nylon screws through digikey

Thermal Grease 2.5g x 5: 4.83ea

22awg 600v pretinned stranded wire: $7.50 50ft

LEDs
XP-G cool white in 10 LED series (http://www.ledgroupbuy.com/products/...ool-White.html)
XP-E royal blue in 14 LED series (http://www.ledgroupbuy.com/products/...oyal-Blue.html)


Ill probably end up buying 3 times as many fuses just in case.

wiring on between LEDs is 22awg
wiring from driver to blocks is 20awg
