    homemade reflector

    ive made a reflector for my 200w envirolite what i did i used the side panel off my old pc server case bent it to the shape i wanted and coated it with mylar i used spray adhesive to attach the mylar to the panel and drilled holes on both sides for hanging it with my easy roll hangers ive attached pieces of wood to it too to hold the actuall e40 lamp holder and lamp and it seems to be doing the job ok ill post some pics and if anyone has any ideas that will make this better then that would be great thanks all
    or do you think i should ditch the homemade one and buy a proper one lol

    Bravo dude... very good. Home-made stuff. Ingenuity. Engineering. Imagination. StonerHood.

    Looks great man. No, don't go out and buy a commercial one.

    Maybe you can add a fan to the other side of the reflector... maybe using a piece of wood like you did with the bulb socket. Something like a PC fan... shooting air straight into the bulb.

    Best dude,

    The Hood I am using now is made from an old highway sign, "Lane ends". painted with epoxy (appliance) paint. spray adhesive is a great idea for mylar, cool hood!

    You said you attached a piece of wood to it for the lamp socket,
