Question 36 inch lights?

I have a 45g tank, 36" L, and I've been looking around trying to find lights to fit over it. Problem is, most lights are either 24", 48", or even larger. Anyone know of a good place to pick up fluorescent strips in my size? What I ultimately want to do is get T8's, either two 2 lamps and combine them or one 4 lamp and then make my own hood to fit over them. I'm looking for anywhere from 135 to 225 total watts(3-5wpg) and then I'll find bulbs to fit. Will bulbs in that size also be a problem? Also, would I maybe be better off just finding the right size fixture with whatever wattage and then overdrive it to where I want the light level? Thanks for any help!
