Making a coleman lantern reflector/handle

OK, I know you've seen these vintage Coleman lantern reflectors - look like this:

Now seems to me couldn't someone fabricate some sort of cool reflector using a Chock Full O'Nuts Can, a metal shelf bracket and a piece of a broom handle?

Or am I crazy, the mountain air gettin' to me?

Actually, I usually call it 'Chock Full O'Nuts and Bolts'. And that fellow Dr. Pepper was a fraud. He was not a licensed practitioner of the healing arts...

I'll keep you posted as this progresses.

Could you please repost pictures of the lantern reflector you made as photo bucket has blurred them.
