Yeah! Thanks to my new friend Marty at B&L Electric here in Salt Lake City, we now have lights in the basement. Mark Rindflesh gave me a great lead and my sixth electrician came to the house on time, and with the skills to git-r-done. Didn't even take two hours to unscramble my work.
The lights are bright and clear! I can see very well under them.
The seem work well with my digital camera, though I've not worked with the settings yet.
While the electrician was here I started cleaning up the shop. I put up the newly made paint rack and got rid of the plastic tubs I was using to hold the paint. It works very nicely.
I'm still a long way from rebuilding my paint collection, but will do it over time. I've got most of the basic colors I use.
