13 year old mr16 can trims converted over to LED. We fully rebuilt 25 of these trims by removing the magnetic transformer and installing a LED pigtail. These LED trims by @elitelightingcorp have an added stainless steel trim that can be replaced when the ocean air destroys them over time. #hardwork #ilovemyjob #ihavethebestclients #beachwork #jobwithaview #shellbeach #pismobeach #sanluisobispo #centralcoast #slosparky #hireaprofessional #electrical #workflow #ledlights #canlights #outsidelighting #poorboylighting #outwiththeoldinwiththenew #upgrade #outwitholdtechnology #stainlesssteel #lighting #killinit
