Creating a vacuum when it cools is safer than having pressure build as it heats up
The issue was attempting to not use the grande cap
For one, anything else will not allow the aluminum deco cap to fit
For Two, whatever else will probably pop off and create damage
the issue i had was the additives in the solution expanded more than H2O
Claude, do you have any glitter lamps in that bunch of mushroom lamps, you know I have a lava version already but would love a glitter version or AT least the bottle to use with my lamp.
I do not know yet, they have not arrived
She did not indicate any specific type of mushroom lamp, other than the shade having a crack where it mounts to the base (which is typical or those lamps)
^^ Let me know if you get a glitter version or at least the glitter bottle on a lamp you might want to scrap. I guess I got lucky the one I found has no damage.
I think i have red glitter fluid from another project
just would have to find a secure container for sending it
So is the chrome look grande just polished alunimium or did you chrome it?
that one is just polished
the issue with chroming any of these (besides the fact the aluminum alloy is thin and not of high quality) is it has to be done by hand and very carefully acid dipped
Otherwise the acid will eat away the steel bottom
thought that would catch your eye
I think I'l wait to find an airbrush artist, putting a sticker on a base that costs $120 for an automotive paint job seems like a sin.
I wanted it to match the rear window of the caravan R/T
I hear ya lol that would be the best way of doing it. I will enjoy seeing the final results!
Oh ya is the black base with remote the LED setup? how is it working for you?
