4 lamp Westinghouse lamp brackets

In case these lampholder brackets didn't look familiar, they came from a Westinghouse fixture similar to this one that I rescued from my old highschool. However, these fixtures had 4 lamps in each section instead of 2. I found a couple of the 4 lamp Westinghouse fixtures that had just been removed from a couple offices but the ballast covers and diffusers had already been thrown out. However, I just had to grab a couple of these lampholder brackets to see if they would fit in my fixture or not. What is even stranger, is that they fit in the fixture perfectly. I thought about converting the rapid start section to 4 lamp. However, I decided to leave it alone for the time being. What I did do though is remove one of the Westinghouse diffusers, wire these beasts up to 2 HPF RS ballasts and fill it up with lamps. It was noticeably brighter with 4 tubes packed into that small space, but somehow it wasn't twice as bright as with 2, which may have something to do with the fact that the tubes are all packed in there. Although we were 3 hours too late to save the entire fixtures, the man from the offices was kind enough to take the lampholder brackets out for me and let me have a couple as well as one of the original Westinghouse ballasts.
