When I referred to "cheap" fixtures, I was talking about the way they fit together: how the lens caps attach; how the fixtures are sealed; how easy to get lamps in and out; etc.
These fixtures definitely could use new sockets. The lamps wiggle in the sockets and there is a little corrosion from not being greased. In my limited experience, I have not ever replaced sockets. Any tricks? And how about a source for good quality sockets?
Weather is getting a little cold for the hands but I am definitely interested in "putting away a few more nuts for the winter."
