Following this resource, I've determined that my aged BK80's lone pop bumper needs a complete rebuild.
I have a few questions for those experienced with such things.

- Is there a "best in quality, completeness, and cost" pop bumper rebuild kit (alliteration unavoidable) supplier I should consider?
- Is it prudent to replace the resistor, cap, and diode during a wholesale rebuild?
- Why not replace the whole shebang with a shiny new pop bumper assembly, rather than rebuild the old with new parts?
- Does a purpose-designed LED pop bumper light kit exist that eliminates the need for a lamp holder entirely?
