Those tubes fit in the Boyu TL550. Is that what you have? or are you DIY a hood?

Sorry, can not help with what ballast. Just a question. Why did you go for that? where are you going to find endcaps for those PL's? There is a thread somewhere that give details how to do it.

Lol that was quick :p Yep most places have a variety of ballasts, usually found in a mess somewhere in the lighting section. Just make sure you wire them properly.
