I think i have an F30T12 RS version of this striplight that i'm currently trying to fix (broken sockets and a big dent in the side of the fixture).

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

That can be fixed. I just repaired two very badly damaged F96T12 fixtures that had been hit by a forklift. I got em free and got paid to replace them so it was definitely worth it.
