Lots of wires in this one .lol.
2x 1-lamp F32T8 ballasts + an emergency ballast pretty much fills it up.

Finally got the ballasts I needed for this. Original pic/description is located here

Cool! Make sure to post a lit up picture!

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Ye gods, how do you know what wire goes where..?

I never did much like those ballasts with all the sprouting wires you get over there, this is just plain daft

Yeah I hate these US style ballasts I hate dealing with all of those wires. HID ballasts are the worst for 'extra' wires with up to 5 (most only have 4 hence the name quad tap) different input voltages to choose from. You could cut and insulate the un-used ones but Murphy's law would then come into effect and you will need one as soon as you remove it . The ballasts with the spade terminals are much better for a cleaner installation. The newer florescent ballasts and LED drivers (AKA power supplies) use those push in terminals now a days but it is not easy finding 18 AWG solid wire with the appropriate voltage rating and color
