Just a typical shop light I repainted

Just a typical shop light I repainted

This was left in my garage by the previous owners of the house. It was so dirty that it was practically impossible to clean. You could not get the dirt off with standard cleaners. It was so bad that the reflector was even slightly yellowed. I was going to repaint it anyway, so I ended up cleaning it with acetone. I painted the top gray, and the bottom of the reflector white to match the color scheme of typical 1940s and 1950s industrial fixtures, which I think looks much better than the typical all white paint job that many lights have, including the one that this did originally. I don’t know who made it, but I believe it to be a typical late 1970s residential grade light. It’s still much better than most of the garbage made today, or any of the old cheap, crappy 40w lights with the “Shoplite” ballasts
