first time retro fitting halides


New member
Hey guys this is my first time retro fitting, so sorry if my questions are very remedial.
If i buy a retro fit kit, they tell me it comes with all the wiring, so if i buy a pendant and ballast. do i have to buy additional wiring too? or does it come with what i need?
I am also guessing you can use any brand pendant with any brand ballast, so does there wiring match up or do i have to buy additional things as well?
and lastly education. i went to high school and college got a BS in BS. i have no electrical training. will i be able to hook it up myself?
oh i guess if anyone knows of links to sites or videos that show how to do this it would be greatly appreciated.

thansk for thw help
