    One final suggestion, the next time you go to change bulbs.... put some car wax on the reflector.

    It will prevent oxidation and keep it nice and shiney for many years to come... just test your wax on a small area before you apply it to the entire surface.

    So here's a little update, the fixture hangs real well and has been working out great. Had to move the lowland trunc back a bit because it was starting to get burnt by the lights. I moved the rack over and added a small portion of the other plastic rack and made a miny table out of it. Worked out perfectly.



    With 31,000 lumens I figured I'd take a couple small Sarrs out of dormancy and get in the mood for Spring They love it so far.
