Thanks to Memorex_Telex for the opportunity to own this and be able to bring this beauty back to life .

THANKS SHAUN !

Love it! "This thing is a BEAST ! Like everything else from the 60's it's HUGE, HEAVY, POWERFUL and incredibly inefficient ! I LIKE IT !"

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

You just need to install it on your driveway now, with a switch, so that you don't annoy the neighbours..

There are two kinds of light  -  the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.

Thanks ! Out of sheer curiosity, I'm planning on weighing both this and the 700w OV-50 (separately of course! ) to see which is heavier !
