Thanks for the positive comments!
Just want to comment that I forgot to add about the sockets/contact cleaning them while they are apart. I used fine emery cloth to clean the terminals and you can use bulb grease. but I chose to use a fine sniff of petroleum jelly, applied by toothpicks.
Also when installing the new bulbs, don't press down on the glass. Use the bottom plastic rectangular base for pressing them in & removal.
Best to buy a few spares as well as I found out this AM. The nighthawks had failures of two bulbs in the low watt filaments within a few hours of use.
I think I have had this thing apart way too many time is the past few days LOL!
