For anyone who tries this, please note that some CFL's are larger then others. If you are retrofitting a T8 (or possibly other sized hoods) you need to make sure the bulb fits inside the hood. There were several different options of bulbs that fit, but some of them were much larger then others - especially if you were looking at the higher wattage bulbs.

I used the "micro mini Sylvania 6700k 13w = 60w bulbs" in the end. (Lowes had them, I'm just linking the amazon to show them)
