thanks for all the comments. I picked up two rolls of 16 foot led ribbon, battery, dimmer, and solar charger for $100 -- thought that was pretty good. I have enough wire and stuff in my junk box for the rest. We will see how it turns out - hopefully it will be so bright in there you can hardly see. The battery should last a few hours - which is way more than needed.
As far as one going out impacting the string - it should not. They are wired in parallel in groups of three if I understand it right -- so no more than 3 should go out. You can cut it and adjust the length so worst case you patch a new piece in.
Will post an update/pics when I get it all installed over the next few weeks (I hope!)
Any other suggestions welcome.
