Replacement bulbs for eclipse?

Where can i find bulbs to fit the stock 15watt lighting on my eclipse 5? It has an incandescent bulb which isnt any good correct? I might even be interested in a cheap upgrade kit if such a thing is available. Thanks

There are decent CF bulbs available with built in ballasts that will screw into the fixture. I found some 15 watters at walmart in the pet section, around $6 I believe. Just make sure the bulb you use has the preferred kelvin rating 5-10K. AH Supply 13watt Bright Kits has 13 watt retro kits, call Kim to see if they will work for your application, he is very helpful......DC
