First off, thank you Sway, dat2zip, george80 and Newbie for your guidance. One way or another you have affected what went into this light.
It have been over 6 months of development since I dreamt of this light. It's was meant to be the first (might be last) of the super light that I wished to own. Various bodies, reflectors & ballast were tested before this one. There is still alot of work to be done. I'm only 80% happy with what I got.
I still have to get the body nickel plated, you all know by now my passion for the chrome/silver look.
The reflector also need a coating. What do you guys think about MOP?
Don't ask me how much $$$, because then you'll think that I'm crazy!
Only three complete prototypes were fabricated. I plan to keep one. The other is for a good friend. While the last one will take a round the world tour thru a flashaholic passarounds. Anyone interested?
