Nice project, are you going to add some cooling fans because with all the ballasts in there it's going to get pretty warm.

oh yes there will be old computer fans in it to extract the heat and after i am done i will take everything out of the front display or tape it up and spray paint it with a nice heat risistand paint so i will end up with a nice blue box or something i will add some trip switches as well
