:( I saw once how you can use one of those vanity bar light strips like you use in a bathroom as a fixture for CFLs. I can't find the post anymore after hours of searching and Im wondering if anyone knows how to do this?

The fixture have 3 wires that hook directly into the wires in your wall, but I want to hook it up to an outlet instead so I can use it in my cab. I am planning to use y connectors so that I can use 8 bulbs instead of 4-- they are all 20w cfls. I know I know cfls suck but its my first grow and im dumb. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I think I can just use a 15 amp 3 prong extension cord and some wire nuts am I right?
thanx

If you don't know much about wiring then get whats called a replacement chord. they are color coded.

White to White
Black to Black
Green to Green

A lot of the cheap fixtures only have 2 wires (white and black) so cap off the green then plug into a GFI outlet or surge protector with a trip reset breaker switch on it. Insulate the wires well. smoke alarm and when pluggin in for the first time do not touch the fixture.
