Thanks Earle I had seen the ad in FAMA but had not gotten a chance to call.
I called Jeff today and ordered some 5500K kits. The price he quoted me was
a little than the one you posted but still a good deal. With 5500K bulbs
the kits were $110 each. He is also sending me some round pendent type
reflectors that he had for $20 each.
I'll post an update when they arrive and I get them together.
Have any type of day you want
