Just wondering bc you said you were starting over but o well. I you can go with 18 cw 18rb and run 3 drivers with 12rb 12cw and 12mix of 6cw and 6rb. when you order make sure dimmable and solderless. Unless you want to solder. Tge solderless is glue and connect.

What you will order.
18) cw cree leds
18) rb cree leds. Solderless
3) mean well dimmable drivers 60-48d
2) 6x20 with hanging kit, splash guard, and stealth fan
tube of thermal adhesive
3) solderless led plugs
3) driver jumper wires
18) 60 degree xp-G optic lenses
18) 60 degree xt-E optic lenses

I think this is all.
When you order your leds you will have a.choose on the wire length you wont to use id go 4.25 in it goes up to six if you draw it out first you will know what length you need. Make a 6x40 piece of cardboard and draw circles for your leds and you will have a good idea for length. Hope this helps
