Not the greatest idea using one of these outside exposed to the elements. May I recommend a vaportight fitting or PL or HID light?

interesting, I kinda like it, and it will last outside for several years, used them all the time when I was younger living Africa outside, we just mounted them flat on the wall horizontal, but I would remove the cover if I was you so the wind doesn't remove it for you, which it will only do when someone parks a car under it.. And living in winterpeg it won't enjoy the -40 you get all winter long either, but you have several months of +40 coming up shortly, the mosquito's will love it..

I'll admit, this is actually a cool set up to me... but I would hope this is really temporary. I've
seen something like this before, only the fixture was completely mounted against a brick wall on top
of a garage/garage door. Now THAT was even worse. Especially since it was clearly a 4 foot fixture.
This was years ago back in 2007, when I was in high school riding the bus. heh

4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Yep
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend

yea this will only be up for a week but i fixed the mounting to make it more sturdy http://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=4213&pos=0&pid=132776
and since its overdriven to 40 watts each wouldn't it be 'okay' in winter here?

Ryanlast last time I was in Winnipeg the underground water lines froze, and they are what 8 feet underground, I know you guys are tough in Winnipeg but it might be to cold in winter for them, then you add a bit of wind and 40 watts will not be enough to heat the tubes and keep them warm, about the only thing I could suggest is to add a plastic tube guard over the lights to give them a bit more insulation allowing the glass to warm up a bit and I slip an o-ring over the tube so the top of the cover doesn't sit touching the top of the light, it just holds it off like an 1/8 of inch but I don't see them being anywhere as bright as your last video showing them working when winter hits... I know your changing them to a HPS but flouresents really don't like the cold, well not -40 on a windy day, even unprotected VHO's suffer and go dimmer..

Yep cold and fluorescent lights don't really mix. Especially not with Normal Output lamps and ballasts. High Output and Very High Output
will do better, but if it's really around -40 around that area, even those could have trouble lighting up.
HPS, Metal Halides or Mercury Vapor would best if you ask me.

I'd attach a heat strip to the fixture, the same stuff we use on the waterheater pipes since michigan likes to destroy pipes it keeps them from freezing and could possibly keep the light at good output... idk though

Hmm never heard of those but sounds like a good idea. Could work quite well. Just would need a separate switch to disable it in the summer, since you'd fry the ballast lol.

And in winter time you could even use it as a dimmer, warm the tubes and they will be brighter, let them cool to dim them out, they did that with a low pressure sodium light in the 60's and made it dimmable :> http://www.lamptech.co.uk/Spec%20Sheets/D%20SLP%20Mazda%20SL60%20Dimmable.htm
