Post pics of your canopy mounted T5's!

I' ve got my canopy made and the next step is to mount the tek T5's. I was thinking to mount the ballast in between the the individual reflectors, but may mount them on the back wall for cooling purposes.

I saw pics of someone using plastic chains to hold up the brackets the fixtures were attached to. Good idea, but my canopy is very short (about 5" of working room).

Do you have the tek's or the retros? I thought the teks had the ballasts inside the fixture. I know SLS doesn't recommend mounting fixtures inside a canopy but don't know why. Maybe the endcaps, etc. aren't waterproof.

I mounted the ballasts for my retros on the back of the canopy to eliminate salt exposure.
