I "invented" that concept 30 years ago, back in the days of the first energy crisis (1973-74). Installed a pie tin reflector in the college dorm laundry room to get more light on the washers and dryers.

Yeah, yeah, leave it to a ham to claim inventing the pie tin [Linked Image]

Look the good side,at least the dummy was not inflatable. [Linked Image] Otherwise looks like a good candidate for a rip out and replace.
