 Ok,  Its  time  for  Update..
 But  First,  before  we  start..
 Electrical  Shock  Hazard  Warning
   Be  fore  warned  that..  This  DIY  involves  working  on  AC  power  which  is  very  DAGEROUS  if  you  don't  know  what  you  are  doing.  So,  If  you  Don't  know  any  thing  about  Electricals,  then  Please  don't  try  this  all  by  yourself.  If  necessary,  don't  hesitate  to  take  help  from  a  person  from  electrical  back  ground..
 And  please  take  all  precautions  and  safety  measure  applicable  when  working  on  Electrics  even  if  you  are  from  electrical  back  ground..
 So,  I  am  not  responsible  in  any  way  for  any  damages  or  injuries  caused,  all  the  risk  is  solely  on  your  side.

 
 So  lets  start  with  the  wiring  schematic..  
 You  have  heard  the  saying..  There's  more  than  one  way  to  skin  a  cat.  I  have  done  it  my  way..  Very Happy  
 I  wired  it  up  in  such  a  way  that  a  single  switch  is  involved  in  switching  both  the  bulbs  ON/OFF,
 The  out  put  from  the  ballast  to  the  bulbs  were  simple  1  to  1  connection,  pin  no1  from  ballast  to  pin  no1  on  lamp..  so  its  as  simple  as  1-1,  2-2,  3-3  and  4-4..  and  remember  these  are  imaginary  numbers,  there  are  no  actual  numbers  printed  on  the  bulbs  or  ballast.
 But,  the  In  put  Power  from  the  wall  out  let  is  through  a  3  pin  plug,  which  has  a  earthing  pin  (its  the  green  wire  in  the  plug)  which  is  very  good  from  point  of  safety.  the  lighting  fixture  itself  is  earthed  (Chassis  earth)  trough  this  pin  so  that  in  case  of  leakages  in  power,  the  fixture  wont  give  you  a  shock..  Smile  
 But  in  order  for  this  to  work,  the  earthing  point  in  the  house  wiring  must  be  grounded  properly..  normally  its  not  a  problem,  but  some  times  even  electrical  people  mess  it  up..  so  get  some  electrician  to  check  whether  the  earthing  point  is  OK  or  NOT..
 So,  Here  is  the  Circuit  Diagram  or  simply  the  schematics  of  the  wiring..

 Ok..  Lets  look  at  the  list  of  all  the  tool  and  some  comsumables  I  have  used.  Some  of  them  are  common  tools,  and  some  of  them  are  not.  And  these  uncommon  tools  are  not  absolutely  necessary,  But  they  give  you  the  professional  finish..  :D
 
 L  to  R  -  Soldering  flux,  Marker,  Soldering  Lead,  Soldering  Iron,  Knife,  Wire  stripper,  Cable  cutter  and  wire  cutter.
   
 
 Top  -  Insulated  lug  /  splice  Crimper,  Bottom  -  Non  Insulated  Lug  /  splice  Crimper..
 
 
 And  some  consumables  -  Insulation  Tape,  Tie  wraps,  Heat  shrinkable  tube,  Insulated  lugs  and  Non  insulated  splices..
 
 
 And  a  Toggle  switch..
 
 
 I  forgot  to  take  snap  of  Cutting  pliers,  screw  drivers,  Tester  (Screwdriver  type),  Drilling  gun  and  bits..   Smile

 @  Thuds..
 The  reflector  was  given  to  me  by  a  IAH  member  as  compliment..
 The  reflector  is  actually  from  an  old  4  footer  industrial  tube  light  fixture.  I  guess,  you  will  probably  get  it  as  a  spare  if  you  ask  in  a  big  electrical  shops  which  is  located  near  an  industrial  area.
