    Howdy, Vinh. I donít know if Dad was a flashaholic like us, but why did he like the lights he did, and what kind of mods did he like to do? I remember the pictures of some of the copper slugs he worked on

    My Father built all the Solis, Sirius, Mules. Basically he built all the lights that required a custom HS and all the high end Sky Lumen custom lights. I only give him ideas and check on the electrical. He started with me since day 1 when I started with P60 drop ins. Today someone contacted me regarding a Solis I had on Sale on my store but I said its no longer for sale. I will post a picture of all the lights I have left that he made. :-)

    Whoa! I had no idea he was so involved and well-versed in this craft! Wonderful to hear about the legacy that he has created, and where you derive some of your intelligence and ability from!

    May his expertise, work ethic, and devotion continue to live on in you, my dear friend.

    Yeah he wanted to remain anonymous. But now that he is gone I think its fair for me to reveal his involvement.

    As nice as those lights are--that Old home made ruler he had or other tools will always be more special--at least for me it is---My Dad and I did so many jobs together--I can still see him folding out his 6' Stick Ruler and an old Tie on Nail Apron--

    That Sirius is incredible! Did all of the Sirius lights use White 1s? I thought most were XP-Ls! That's wicked.


    I find myself most curious about the photography mule- is it a continuous light, or is it a flash?!

    Very cool! That honestly seems like a great idea, it could provide a great amount of fill light but not distracting or too flattening. I will now try to find a flashlight mount for a hotshoe mount!

    Actually, the proposed revisions makes sense too. What's the dog ear?

    That's very classy and appropriate, Vinh. I wasn't around CPF when you lost your dad but since the thread is active, I just wanted to say that I'm sorry for your great loss. I know that you'll miss him during the time in this body but when you meet again, you'll be in your resurrected bodies and experiencing everything that God has in store! Praise be to God!

    Yes it's a piece of our lives missing, but we will see them again and that's our hope and why we can keep going.
    Thanks Patriot&Vinh - standing on the rock!
