Ok here is some more work on this light...

Penny for your thoughts, I think pennies make better weights for to hold down
our panel while glue dries than they do money for to spend.
One by one the panels go on, I like to alternate as this makes it easier to glue down I think.
This side down now the same thing needs to be done on the other side.

Cool ATP.
I look at that and see a hand holding a shrunken head wrapped in rattan light.

Here is the first Kahiki light have done the rehab on it and have a total of four
of these same lights.

Got these from a guy who was at the egg roll Kahiki sale I had just bought like
2 thousand bucks worth and had no room for more, But the girl liked this guy and was
giving him like crazy low prices, so when she would tell him a super low price
on some Kahiki thing I would say so how much is this then to a smaller thing
and bam get an even lower price than he did.
I could not say no, Shoulda brought him the first time.

lights that were broken went for low prices, but at that time was not sure if
I could fix em or not.

Wish I had bought even more.

Thanks, but mostly cleaned off the peanut oil that was on this light.
All of the lights that were in the sale were at the egg roll factory
had a strong smell of peanut oil I guess from the frying of egg rolls.

I want so bad to put Tapa on that tube in the center but don't know
if I should mess with them that much.
Plus would need to cut bottom ring of rattan and replace it.

Have an idea of where these would work.

Need to finish that first light.

Going to do rehabs on the Kahiki lights I have, there are many.
Will post photos of them here.
Some of the "lights" I got are not lights as they have no sockets or paper in them,
and some just need new sockets and wiring.
Others need lots of repairs.

Here we go.....



Nice!

Thanks Jamie, you most likely will be the first to know via email.

Those are some nice floats Wendy.
I think of your post when it gets like really cold here say 1 degree, the
post where you show the thermometer and it says 50 degrees, your quote was
"man it's really cold here today"
The other day the local news got all happy because it was going to be like 35 degrees!

It's time to move when the UP side to the weather is 35 degrees.
Enjoy Maui, and thanks.

I took an electric blanket with us to Maui. I used it every night. I could live colder than California. You poor people. Wendy
