Finally got around to painting the metal ballast cover plate a flat white.

The ballast seems to overdrive the electrodes on the yellow leads making one end of each lamp glow brightly (if the other is removed) so i modded one of the yellow wires with a diode to block half the AC cycles from getting to the filaments which cuts the voltage in half to them. Now the filaments on the yellows are driven the same as they are on the red and blue leads. Fixture still starts up excellently
