We have all the new bulbs. Not installed yet. While looking at where to put lights in I had a peek for the ballast up top. This pic shows a something?!? But unless it is a ballast, there is nothing up top. What you see here is the top thin frame, there is nothing above. The rest of it looks just like the bottom. No room for ballast. Well, I'm going to try the bulbs. Feel free to hit me with any more ideas. It's too simple to just replace bulbs. My confidence level for this working is low
keep your fingers crossed for me!
