Thanks for the pics and writeup Carl!

Perhaps if enough people around fingal for this they'll just install flat glass FCO's as it will be less work!

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. . . .

Carl,
Fair play.
How much of a difference does it make for you?

Isn't is crazy they will go to such lengths but yet not replace the lighting system?
Is it that hard for them to do?

There was a new street built to the back of my house last month
and when I saw the polls for the lights going up I said to my wife,
''well, it's looks like we will be moving sooner rather than later''
But..
They used the 'full cutoff' lights and I have to say I can't see any
real difference.

It just go's to show that you gt nowhere if you keep your mouth shut.

Fair play to ya Carl thats how you get things done
I hope others are inspired and a bit of momentum gets
going.I've just emailed a local gas depot about installing
more efficient and enviromentally friendly lighting options.
i'll let you know their responce maybe it would make for
a good article in A&S?

oh wise man why is the universe so perfect?ah because symmetry loves herself.
