Just adding a little on my project; I'll create a new thread showing the whole project off later.
Since no one sells CCFL + LED light
fixures, I' making my own vacu-formed (sometimes called blow-formed) CCFL/LED light
This is the form for my new lights
with its two 12" CCFL lights
and a central 36 LED lamp module set in place. The white plastic fixture shells I'll be vacu-forming around these will be 27-3/4" long x 3" deep x 7/8" tall and will have two slider switches set into the little carved out sections in the front lip for on/off and CCFL/LED mode, and there'll be a clear white diffuser on top of the bulb compartment to help spread the light
. The ballast/inverter box does not fit inside my fixture; I decided I'd mount those inside the cabinets my fixtures attach to so I could keep the profile low and clean.
I still have to finish making the vacu-form jigging and setup, but am most of the way done with that. Perhaps I'll have fixtures next weekend! Then I'll be able to show the whole lot off at Bandon!
