    Hi guys, I'm going to be spraying a house soon with multiple ceiling spotlights. What tips can you share? Is it a case of popping them all out and bagging?

    Many thanks,

    Devs.

    12v halogens? Quick and easy to remove.

    LED spots but I suppose they are the same difference mate. Would you remove rather than bag? I was thinking that I might need the light off them! Thanks, Devs.

    Not sure how bright your lighting is but I find sometimes I have to turn these lights off when painting a ceiling as they can be blinding, they may get to hot a melt a bag, you could remove the part that actually holds the bulb and just leave the bulb hanging from the lamp holder.
    Or use a couple of work lamps in the room.

    Cheers for the help. ;)
