Im contemplating the same thing, but going to use wood with sheet metal tape inside for a reflector, have a ballast for each bulb, It can only be 6" wide and 24" long.

I am trying to get two 65W bulbs in there, got metal halide ballasts to work with so Im sure I can make this work and work well, I am however also wanting to go down the CFL screw in route and have 4 bulbs, 2 day 2 night. each on their own ballasts and their own switches mounted opposite of eachother, one finger wave and it shuts one or the other on and off.

I am thinking I can get mine done for the price of the bulbs.

Not only am I broke but I got a wife what wont hush about me and the way I care for my tank. She thinks ideas and a little MacGyver-ism cost money.

the bulbs are twisted but like you said its about reflection.

I always CAD my ideas before I construct them so I will have a form of a blueprint to follow
