A bullet hole is just a challenge...just need backing and some filler along with sand paper!

Either that or they could jump like a kangaroo.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

LOL...seems to be that way.
When I received this, the arm was attached to about 12" of rotten pole with all of the mounting hardware and a clevis insulator. It appeared to have come from some public works department, possibly a park. Maybe someone climbed a tree and shot it? Or maybe from a pedestrian bridge? Anyway, I'm trying to make it look like new again...we'll see how it turns out!

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.
