    It could be done this way. There is not set way to do it other than repeat a concept, such as angle entries, and make them individual blinds with a unique beginning and unique ending. Can you post a...

    I've used the tracer lights on my older 500s. They work well. Prefer the blue or white as it is easier to see than the red.
