Comments:Had this for about a year now and it's about time I got to work restoring it. As some of you know the original 4-pin starter holder had been removed and a 4' 40W choke and starter holder had been squeezed inside. With the original starter lamps being too scarce to use I've decided to use a GLS lamp instead. Holes are to be filled and the fitting is to be resprayed, probably in the much rarer blue and white colour scheme. The old and rather brittle wiring is to be replaced, a bayonet lamp holder is to be fitted where the 4-pin starter holder would have been and a potted Pulsestarter with flying leads will be used for starting.

Love the way this seems to work like an MBTF lamp!

Cool a self ballasted fluorescent, (well almost).

Blimey, it's only taken nearly 6 years since this to restore it Rolling Eyes
