I built this 160w CFL grow light so my chillis can get a head start on the warm weather.

Finished Light Top

The light hood is a basic painted MDF frame and the inside is lined with a windshield reflector and flashing tape.

Reflective Coating

Each side has four B22 sockets salvaged from some old party lights with 20w globes installed.
