There are tabs for soldering on or attaching female spade terminals inside the fixture, but come on.. really?!? Is that the way they all ship, or did I get one that snuck by quality control?

Barry,
Yes I forgot that part...I had to make up the connections on mine too. I used spade terminals instead of soldering. Works fine but like you said.... Come on...really? They should complete the damn thing for us!
