Why 8k?
The light output is lower on an 8k.
6k's are the best light temp output, imo.

K is the color temperature. 4000K to 6000K have the most light output per watt consumed. The further you go either way from that range, the less light output you have. It's all about the spectrum of visible light, and we try to stay in the middle of it.

Gave the girl a good wash and vacuumed the inside.

Picked up a really nice Dewalt tool bag today so I rearranged my toolbox and put some of my other boxes in the garage.

Went back to the Junkyard for the 3rd time this week. This time picked up a new Dome Light after snapping mine off while trying to get it off for the Explorer OHC install. Very Happy with that mod.
