When I pull out a fixture or full system of quality parts, I usually end up storing anything that could be of value. Every season I end up using a few risers, hoods and lense that I have slavaged. Now if it was from a Malibu system, that is different, that junk goes straight into the dumpster.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
