So I wanted to just drop in a new ballast into my T5 fixture to make it T5HO.
Turns out its a piece of... carp and the "ballasts" that are in it are just heat shrunk and look like a death trap. The proper Epson T5HO Ballast I bought won't fit into my existing enclosure.
So I made a new one.
My question is... How do you affix, wire, end caps? are they everything I need to attach the lights to the ballast?
Here's what I'm looking at buying.
What else do I need? I will recycle the reflector from my current one, I have the ballast, switches, and the wiring from the ballast.
heres the end caps.
T5 Water Proof Fluorescent Double End Cap (Each)
Thanks for your info!
it'll be going into a wooden box I made for it - Plywood, Glued and nailed together. Will be painting it gloss black with tremclad.
