How many candles?
As an aside, when I turned fifty, I said I wanted the full fifty candles on my cake -- none of this "two candles shaped like numbers" stuff. It was quite a sight.
Nowhere near 50 candles on my cake, that's all I gotta say
Jesse, I haven't done a retrofit yet. Someday maybe. I'm not worried about its difficulty though, it seems pretty straight forward.
As for BHLM's. I do it correctly, I don't just spray the lights, I sand them down very thoroughly. The process can take a couple hours. Sanding is the hardest part, chrome is not fun to work with. Painting them I can have done in about 20-30 minutes if I have heat, or heat lamps to flash off the paint. It takes roughly 10 minutes to pull the lights apart or reseal them back up. Double all those times if the process should include large amounts of bullshitting and or alcohol involved. You may actually want to triple those numbers.
