Just tested a MK38vn with SFT40 with OP reflector VS smooth reflector.
Smooth was about 500Kcd.
What do you think OP reflector is?

Whoever is closest wins a light :)

This will turn into the Price Is Right where 1cd wins.

I think the effect of OP (depending of the type of OP) is generally less than many would think. I'll say 10% so 451Kcd.

That was a sweet 1st, new ride, Bob! Hopefully you still have some pictures of that memory. My first vehicle (not new) as a 1985 Ford F-250HD 4X4 with a 460ci and a four speed. The truck was nearly indestructible. On the downside, the emission equipment on that motor was terrible. I had to put it all back on every year before taking it to get the smog test done. Funny thing was, when it was tuned properly it easily passed the emissions part of the test without all the extra equipment on it but of course didn't pass the equipment inspection portion. I eventually took the guts out of the smog pump so that it wasn't pushing any air into the exhaust manifold, then I only had to add and remove the belt. I learned a lot, at 17-18 years old, about turning Ford V8's though.

I wanted to share some pictures of a trip that my buddy and I took, while visiting some ancient lava tube caves. It's a place that I've been to many times but this trip was a little different with new phone camera's and about 75,000 lumens worth of Sky Lumen hardware. I've never seen these particular caves illuminated to the level that we had them at. The videos are pretty spectacular but here are some pictures....

WOW those cave photos are amazing. Must be scary as heck to sleep there at night. Is that a natural Cave?

Going from orange peel to smooth reflector is usually a huge difference.
