2 of them were NOS and 3 used slightly , my dad and I are remodeling the bathroom so the light might get replacement soon with something else which is unknown so far. For now I put some incandescent s in it in case it gets smacked by something

I was tempted to do this in my guest bathroom as I have enough Compax lamps now, but I didn't like the 2800K color and my guests would probably freak out with all the blinking when they turn the lights on.

I'm lampin...

How many Compaxes do you have? Is the color seriously 2800K?
I have a 15w Compax like the ones pictured above lit above my head right now! As for the blinking, that would be hilarious with one of the 8-lamp versions! You could use some FLB/17s (The later version of the Compax) as well.
Aaron, are you guys painting too?

Thanks! Man doesn't everyone just love mass-preheat start ups! Especially PL lamps. Some PLs are crazy blink-happy!

My new place actually has some fixtures I could see myself using these lamps in! But some other boring lights are probably going to get fluorescent strip lights

Oh cool that you own your own now! Do you own the lot it's on as well or do you still pay space rent? If so that's not horrible either...you could buy your own land and move the mobile home there while you build an actual house...
how many bed/bath?
How old? 70s like many are?

Yeah lot rent is what I pay and it includes water and sewer/trash, it's a lot cheaper than an appartment with more space and I can actually do what I want with the lights
This one's from 1983, they recently sold a few double wide units in the park too
I plan on getting a house in 4-8 years when I have enough money saved up for a down payment. .too bad the housing market is probably going to be booming by then so I won't be able to get anything cheap/for closed
I have 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom laundry area and a huge walk in closet..and let's not forget the shed! It's got an interesting tandem 4ft vintage fluorescent!!

There is at least 1 place under the cabinetS that will fit an F40t12 fixture, I have one that is slim but painted black so I'll probably re paint.it
I'll use the longest length lamps that will fit with shorter ones at the end if there's room for them

I'd love to install undercabinet lights but my parents would kill me if I drilled holes in the cabinets lol. When I get me own house I might. I actually like those puck light things or rope light better than fluorescent undercabinet lights. I use some of my undercabinet lights to light my shelves in the utility room. I currently have a F20T12 preheat undercabinet light and a 2X F8T5 preheat undercabinet light with a removed (broken) diffuser. Both are NOS. The F20 has a Sylvania GTE F20/WW and the F8 has two new chinese GE F8T5/CW lamps.

I've noticed that with mine too! I guess when going to the bathroom at 2AM though that gives your eyes time to adjust!
My bathroom is 2XF32T8 instant start...it's bright with those 3500K lamps!

Yeah I noticed PL13 preheat lamps start off dim. Not a huge fan of that but they're nice and bright after a minute. Some new CFLs start off about as bright as a 7W nightlight lamp and their 13W 60W= lamps.
