Has been burning the same bulb for 40 years or more.. It has a westy in it.. And is still decently bright.. Not sure the model of the security light..

Looks similar to the one-piece bucket light I have, which I believe to be a Powerlite.

That's an oddball. Could you maybe rescue it? You could replace it with another NEMA.

Perhaps.. When I move back in.. I doubt my parents would notice.. I don't want to use my own NEMA though.. Perhaps I could replace this with that handyman bucket that my friends going to let me take soon.. Or perhaps that industrial looking fixture on the abandoned factory..

I have a 70w metal halide yardblaster (well, originally HPS) that I could send if you'd want. Only charge would be shipping.

Yeah I say leave it too, just give it a new lamp and PC if needed. By what you said the current lamp is fine and I don't see it on, so the PC must be good too. The bucket looks a little yellowed but honestly that would probably help with glare toward neighbors' houses. Since the bottom is open, there's no blocked light downward. Other than the aesthetics, the brown lens won't cause any issues. I kinda think a browned lens looks cool on an old tired MV light. Makes a cool effect on the color of the lamp too. Clear lamps look lime green through the brown lens and /DX lamps appear like /N lamps (warm tone MV lamp).
