I actually considered the reflective tape with some shop lights and just changing out the ballasts,but as I am not ready for the lights yet I am holding off a little longer now. How long have you had this set up?
Puncrock, he did not hard wire anything! all he did was wire a plug to his T-5 unit. He now just plug it in like you ror me would do.
"Hard Wire" is when a person wires a unit directly to the house wiring...Bypassing the plug....
