Re: PIXI LED panel lights

I got the commercial 2x2's in 2700k and they were TOO yellow. Ordered 4k and will be returning these. They are SOOOO thin! Needle nose pliers for scale.

Any reason not to go iron pipe?
Where is best place to buy air line supplies?
What air line supplies do I need?
Should I get a separate 120v circuit for it, or share an existing garage circuit?
