    pc fans can be powered with 12v adapters. Make sure you have more amps than you use.

    Get plug in light sockets. Less than 3 bucks each at the hardware store.

    Get a power strip. I used J-B Weld to paste it to the box.

    Get 3 or 4 23-24 watt cfl of each 6500k and 2700k light temps. Daylight and soft white.

    If odor is an issue for security look up the carbon filter compendium here and look up ONA gel. Also you might want to get odor eliminating cfl lights if you're super paranoid. Usually found on amazon.

    To line your box get mylar or reflective insulation or paint the inside flat white. No foil. Other things work well but I can't remember what they were called. Emergency blankets or those car window reflector thingies work well too I hear. I used spray adhesive and aluminum tape to put mine together.

    Go to the micro grow section for some more ideas on how you want to set up your box.

    I hope that gives you somewhere to start for your box. If you have more questions just pm me or just ask here and I'll try to point you in the right direction.

    When you start your grow make a grow journal and make sure you strip your post data (EXIF) from your images. I'd love to see your progress!

    Good luck bud! :smoke:[/quote]
