I read a thread awhile back about having a p90 or p60 bulb in a e2e...
I know about teh e2c...but i decided i really wanted to try this instead. So, now, ive stripped the reflector off the bulbs, but i find that when i put the p60 in, theres a huge donut hole...how do i fix that?

As for the p90, the bulb is too long, and it wont fit into the bezel without it hiting the lens...can i fix that as well?

thanks!

You have to add a big washer to the front of the lamp, to back it up a little from the reflector, if you still have that hole you should dissasembly the bezel (separate the lens holder ) and put a rubber o ring there. what you want is to seat the reflector farther from the base of the lamp.

Expect to get 4 or 5 minutes run time before thermal shutdown (the batteries get so hot than the protection kicks in)
Also you will toast the reflector with the P-61.
For the P-90 you need a body with 3 batteries. same thermal shutdown.

No, it will be black around the hole, really the E2C and Z-44 bezel (C-2 bezel) is a much better modification because used the original P-61 reflector mass and the mass of the adaptor and bezel combined to dissipate the heat.
I will take some picture later.

I just forgot to tell you that you also should take out the Pyrex lens which is too thick, and replace with a mineral lens. And to put a P-90 there you have to use 2 of the new R 123 rechargeable batteries. It is a thread going on about that, look for it.
Hope it helps
