Any one got a old metal 24" light that's working or not? I want to build my own light but need an old light can, so even if it's gutted that's ok. :smile:

Watcha planning?
Not sure yet but something with a couple of T5's and some leds most likely. so that's why I need the metal enclosure as a starting point. Any tips?

IMO your better off doing what I did unless you plan on using sun blasters

A 4 bulb 24" fixture costs about the same as buying just the ballasts

I'm planning on using 2 sunblasters which I have already and at least 2 maybe 4 led 12" stunners. I'll probably put 2 temperature controlled cooling fans as well. Still looking for an enclosure, anyone know where I can get a low voltage fan temp. controller:question:
