That's cool, I also was actually going to post a similar post as you did because I found a good shroud idea too, but just haven't had the time to snap pics of it yet. You beat me to it with your post. My idea has to do with chrome gauge trim surrounds for aftermarket gauges, and aluminum bowls which both were pretty cheap too, but the cool thing about it was you don't need to cut a super precision hole in the center of this thing I stumbled on. You just need to cut crude holes in the aluminum bowls but the chrome trim surrounds will glue PERFECTLY over the bowls so as people without patience or precision tools can get the perfect circle. I'll have to post pics of my stumbling too. This is cool, we need to have Herman start a new chapter in the FAQ and we can add all these cool ideas on shrouds for lamps.
