id probally mess it up and end up buying a light anyway . theres a good deal. a year old jebo something. 2 55 wat bulbs. 10$ shipping.

or i could go for the new jebo odyssea for 48 watts.

im planning on having one light actinic so it wont be as bright.

it depends on the ballast they have installed.. if your wanting to change the wattage of the bulbs you almost need to know enough to build one..LOL
I have a link for the ballast for 25 bucks!!!! LOL come on you know you want to DIY it!!

When you get older? Do you still live with your parents.. Are you old enough to be using power tools, like a circular saw?
