Well I just got a 4ft 2-lamp slimline strip light today! $20 off Craigslist with the lamps! It's an old Day-O-Lite model (made right in Warwick, RI!) with a replacement Advance ballast from the 90s (originally Universal ballast per the labeling on the original wiring). Best part was that it was a 10 minute drive from my house to pick it up! The guy really took care of it when he removed it too. Not a scratch on it! I just cleaned it with some wet paper towels and it came clean as new!

Thanks! It came with Sylvania Ecologic cool white lamps with low hours and I have a pair of NOS GE cool white slimline lamps (that I don't want to use). Other than that I have no slimline lamps at all. Maybe sometime I'll go back up to Webster Electric and get some 4ft slimline lamps and maybe some 4ft HO lamps too while I'm at it (and some good ol' F40T12s!). Nothing fancy though. Just either classic CW, classic Daylight, or SP35. Maybe some 5000K. And I'll probably get more mogul base 100W MVs "just because" lol. Not for awhile though. I've spend enough money for now. $200 per visit (or $400 total). A once in a lifetime experience though, with all those light bulbs! Shocked Grin
