    ok if u dont come right with a ready made one ......another option is :
    tback reflectors from julie @voltexcoland 70 bucks 4 ft
    ply knocked together from Builders express 300 bucks
    ballasts for tridonic @Superteam ordanace rd under 3oo
    globes from The lighthouse 80bucks each
    waterproof endcaps : only thing i cant get anymore @ 55 each
    and we knock up a nifty looking one ourselves :::?????

    but only if u up to some DIY:) ...mine came out swell with sum waterproof paint and silicone over the electronics and grafting fine with lots of ventilation...but its just a suggestion if u not feeling lazy or like driving around
