Sconce Light Fixtures
Here is a picture of how sconce lights illuminate the front of the trailer and bathe the area in soft light. These lights incorporate both 120 volt AC bulbs and 12 volt DC bulbs for versatility.
The sconce lights from my trailer were certainly old, discolored and needed refurbishing.
Structurally, they were a bit primitive but still very functional when tested.
The electrical parts simply needed to be replaced for safety. The thin oil cloth-type diffusion material was stained and discolored from heat.
My stock pile reserves included some plastic ceiling panels. They were of the proper thickness and could act as a diffuser replacement. However, the material was stiff and needed to be cut and molded into the proper shape of the sconce.
My carpentry skills aided me in cutting the material into the proper size. A wooden mold was fashioned to aid in the shaping of the new material for the fixture.
After a couple trial runs and using some external heat I was able to properly shape the plastic into a usable diffuser.
Both sconce lights gained new diffusers and were now usable.
After being stripped of their electrical parts the fixtures and mounting screws received a couple coats of Rust-Oleum paint.
The fixtures turned out very nice and were equipped with new light sockets with switches and efficient LED bulbs.
My refurbished light fixtures work very well, look great and were very satisfying to complete.
