Remember to put up some pics of ur new lighting fixture so i can see! ;) And i know i sound stupid right now asking so many questions, but, Last one, Will the same concept work with my 18"? Cuz i just measured my lighting, and the current ballast is 18".

Hm, well, im going out to look for the things today. I live in Toronto, So i got some Canadian Tires / Home Depots near me and I was wondering if I use the same bulb, or a different bulb once I switch the ballasts?

Ok, we'll I just took out my plastic thing(White opaque hood or w.e under light) and there wasn't a ballast? There were only 2 little shiny:rolleyes: things in the middle, would those be the magnetic ballasts? And where did u put the new ballast? Just in the hood? Cuz I don't think it'll fit in mine o_O:|

hey, Well, i went to Home Depot, turns out that they didn't carry electric ballasts? You can't use magnetic ballasts for OD right? Btw, is your ballast a F32T8?
