Here is the fixture completed. It is now a proper 2xF15 tandem fixture indistinguishable from an OEM one. I will have to order in a 2lamp HPF ballast for this.

That's cool! Can't say I've ever seen one in real life! Even regular 3ft fixtures are rare!

Sick!! Awesome man! I need some pointers on how to do this myself. Since I'm legit horrible at following typed directions,
videos of this kind of stuff would certainly help lol

Thanks! Right now even though results are usually good, my process is disorganized. Pretty happy with how this one turned out.

Ive seen 2xF40 tandem fixtures often but never seen any other sizes

I think I've seen two F30T12's in tandem before, and I may have also seen F20T12's in tandem as well, but definitely
not F15T12's. This is the kind of idea I wanted to do but could never find F15T12 fixtures that would fit HPF Trigger Start
ballasts, and I also didn't know how to put them together in tandem, while using a 2 lamp ballast for them.
I may try this idea as well sometime. Maybe. I've still got several F15T12 and F15T8 lamps not being used at the moment.
I got rid of all of the desk lamps they were once in, due to potentially moving in the next couple months.

Thanks!

Whats everyones opinion on ballasts for fixtures like this? Should i have one 2lamp series ballast to run both lamps or should i have two single lamp ones. ( either ones would be HPF )

Hmm I'd say a two lamp since two single lamp ballasts would be like having two separate strip lights.

Although a one lamp ballast in each would be unique as well, I strongly agree with Streetlight98. And the tandem look is always
even more awesome to me personally, when both lamps are in series. I don't know why.
