Pepsi sign - cover removed

Pepsi sign - cover removed

Click to view full size image

Here is the pepsi sign with cover taken off. As you see it takes 2 F40T12s in a staggered pattern. Im not really a fan of this and would of rather had it use an F20 + F40 T12 lamp

I may consider installing 2 rows of white LED tape inside this but keep the parts intact incase I revert back. That would mostly be to make the sign lighter, have even brightness and remove the ballast hump in the back to make mounting to a wall easier. Ill see

What a sloppy-looking setup. Shoulda had a single 6-footer.

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Yeah this setup makes the middle of the sign brighter than the rest because it has 2 lamps in the center but not at the ends.

Yeah I guess they wanted to save costs and use commonly available lamps and ballasts. Personally I would use something like a single 72" lamp or two 36" lamps in tandem.

It would be neat to convert this into slimline but lamps other than F48 and F96 are hard to get around here

Two sets of tandem F30T12 would even out the brightness, though it would be quite bright! Our cola machine at work uses two sets tandem F15/F20T12 for illumination.
