This is the light i installed in my dining room. I completely re wired it with new ballasts. It now has an Advance 2x 20 watt ballast and an advance 1x 20 ballast in it It had old GE ballasts that overdrove the lamps and the cloth wiring was severely deteriorating on it.

Nice. I would like to seen how the old ballasts worked.

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.
