    Globrite LEDs replacement

    I have had 3 LEDs go bad this year. The first 2 were under warranty and the 3rd is not. The PB wants $474 for the light and $150 labor. Yikes. It looks like I can get this on Amazon for $350. Is this something I can do myself or is it best to just have the PB do it.
