Subject: Re: Lightproofing a Garage

I would get a temp greenhouse frame or make one out of pvc pipe and covering
it with blackout. it will solve both doors and the lights. you can hang safe
lights from the frame.

If you make you own frame you can build a door that is light tight by making
a second wall along one side forming a U to enter the darkroom or overlap
the fabric at one end for a door. It also help the problem of someone
opening the garage door while you work.

good luck
