I don't believe in sacking out. I understand wanting to do something with a worry wart of a horse, but I don't think that sacking out is the answer.
So you get them used to tarps, flashing lights etc, so what happens when they come across something that you didn't have on your list, like a pig, a kid playing football or any other of the million things that could happen?
I think you would do better gaining your horses trust, and just being their leader, so you can lead them through anything scary.
Sacking out is the thing of the moment because of certain trainers, but I am not sure it's common sense.
