 Hi  Guys,
 Well,  Although  this  not  exactly  a  complete  DIY  from  scratch  stuff..  If  modification  can  be  considerd  as  DIY  then,  that's  what  exactly  I  will  be  doing.
 First  of  all,  I  got  this  Old  lighting  fixture  from  Silent  Auction  -  ASK  meet  08-Sept-2013..  The  Lighting  fixture  was  put  into  auction  by  Vyas.
 
 Parts  list  as  of  now..  Will  keep  it  updated  as  the  work  progress.  Smile  
 1.  1  No.   Old  2  footer  lighting  fixture.  (  Thanks  to  Vyas)
 2.  2  Nos.  OSRAM  DULUX  L  55  W/865  2G11,  Coolday  light,  6500K.
 3.  2  Nos.  Electronic  Choke,  55W.  (Not  Branded,  But  quite  popular  among  electricians)
 4.  4  Nos.  Bulb  holders  (2  extra  in  case  of  a  problem).
 5.  4  Nos.  Supporting  Clamps  (2  extra).
 6.  1  No.   4  foot  Reflector  which  will  be  cut  to  2  nos  of  2  foot  each.  (  Thanks  to  Krishna  Prasad)
 7.  2  Mts  of  4-core  cable.
 8.  Hardware  For  Bulb  holder  M3  X  12  screws,  M3  Nuts,  M3  Washers   and  for  choke  M4  X  10  Screws,  M4  nuts,  M4  Washers..  etc
 9.  Plus  the  usual  paint  and  related  stuff.
 
 The  Lighting  fixtures  were  in  good  condition,  it  only  needed  a  fresh  coat  of  paint..
 Thanks  to  coldfear39  (Abhilash)  for  the  picture  below..
 
 
 It  contained  2  set  of  20W  T12  bulbs  with  a  Single  Ballast  which  drove  both  the  Bulbs.  I  just  ripped  all  the  things  inside  the  fixture  and  worked  on  it  with  a  few  sheets  of  Emery  paper  (Sand  paper)  before  painting..
 
 
 Gave  a  coat  of  white  paint  on  the  inside..  But  the  out  side  paint  job  will  be  done  at  the  end  as  the  paint  will  be  damaged  while  working  on  it..
 
 
 Went  to  B.V.K.Iyengar  Road  and  bought  these  Bulbs  and  Accessories..
 Osram  Dulux  L  55W  PLL  Bulbs  2  Nos  Rated  865  -  6500K  (Cool  Daylight)..  Which,  I  believe  fits  as  though  that  this  fixture  was  made  for  these  bulbs..  Smile  
 
 
 And  other  things  which  I  needed  to  fix  and  run  these  bulbs..  I  bought  those  holder  and  clamps  in  excess  of  2,  Just  In  case..  Wink  
 
 
 And  2mts  of  4-core  cable  which  was  lying  around  in  the  house..
 
 
 Krishna  Prasad  gifted  me  with  this  beautiful  reflector  Friends..  which  is  once  again  a  perfect  match  for  my  project,  it  has  all  the  cutout  and  holes  needed  to  fix  on  the  Lamp  holder  side.  Although  this  is  actually  meant  for  a  4  footer  Tube  light  fixture,  my  lighting  fixture  is  only  2  feet.  So,  I  will  have  to  cut  it  in  to  two  parts..  each  bulbs  will  have  their  own  separate  reflector   Very Happy  ..
 
 
 That's  it  for  now,  will  update  as  the  work  progress..

 Sorry  Guys,  
 Was  a  bit  busy  ,  so  was  off  line..
 
 @  Abhishek..  
 Thanks  Buddy..
 
 @  Thuds..
 Hey  Thuds,  
 The  55w  PLL  are  a  bit  longer  than  the  36W  bulbs,  so  make  sure  you  have  the  extra  space  needed  to  accommodate  these  bulbs..
 They  are  like  535  mm  in  over  all  length,  where  as  36W  is  about  415  mm.
 
 @  Waseem..
 The  pleasure  is  mine  Waseem.  You  get  80w  PLL  in  Osram,  but  they  don't  come  in  coolday  light  (6500K).  You  get  them  in  3000K,  4000K  and  8000K..  but  8000K  wont  be  stocked  by  dealers  in  any  wattage  of  what  so  ever,  so  forget  that.  Then  too  80W  PLL  them  self  might  be  out  of  reach  as  they  are  not  much  of  a  moving  item,  so  they  might  not  stock  the  others  as  well.  So  good  luck  in  finding  them..  here  is  the  link  to  the  bulbs..

 @  Pradeep..
 Thanks  Pradeep..  
 
 @  Ruchit..
 Thanks  Ruchit,
 Yes,  Black  color  Matt  finish  is  a  good  choice,  few  others  have  suggested  the  same  as  well..  Thanks  for  the  in  put..
 
 @  Janardhanam,  shyamhegde,  shri-novice,  alman  and  Sunny_2K_99
 Thanks  for  the  support  Guys..  Thumb Up
