Captain's Lights...free

I just replaced the four captain's lights in my Escape 19 with different fixtures and would like these to go to a good home. Perfect shape, includes the bulbs, just pay for shipping. PM me if you're interested.

How cool! We did that last year also and put the old ones on a swap table at a rally. They quick disappeared.

question for you... What are the screws that hold the stock lights driven into? one of the screws on mine is loose and won't tighten, feels like its stripped. I can't see the top side because there's a false bottom in the overhead cupboard.

I hated those stock captains lights til I replaced the bulbs with warm white lower lumen wider beam LED MR11 bulbs, now I love them.

I followed your lead on the replacement bulb and really like the warmer light.....

Captain's lights have been spoken for. On to the next project!

John, your question as to what the screws for the lights are driven into is a very good one. I have the same question but no answer since I couldn't see what was behind it.
I was surprised how long those screws are (3 inches or so?) and had to be careful on one because it was starting to strip also.
For those replacing the lights with another fixture, be aware of this.
