Re: the overhaul of a gymlight. . .

Thanks for all you help on this matter. I talked to an electrican and here is what he said:
Paul yes, you could go exactly what you said, i am an electrician, the only precautions i would take is for you to run a 600 volt insulated wire to accomplish your remote ballast, the output voltage of most HID (high intensity Discharge) fixtures is just over 500 volts, so I would remote this with a piece of mc cable, that is a piece of flexible metal covered cable to protect it from physical damage.

also how much is the superspectrum hood by itself?

get some really thick wire, thicker than what u see going to the bulb. you will NOT need the ground because there are only 2 wires! if you were to do the socket side, you'd need all 3
