Hi folks!

I have grabbed a used Arri 300 Plus from ebay,which was previously used by rental house.
After inspecting it I noticed that the black coating on the inside of the top hatch is completely gone.

Will this be an issue? light bouncing withing the Fresnel? Or heating problems?
And what is the best way to fix it?

Thanks a lot!

Edit,just found out there was a 650w bulb in it :blink: It had huge stains,so I am not sure how it didn't explode on me.

The Arris are pretty bad for this, its a common problem. Theoretically there is a lot more off-angle light bouncing around the head. But really in a small fresnel I haven't seen it make enough of a difference to be worried about.

Thanks! On the other forum I was suggested painting it with BBQ paint,which I did,so far so good.
