Mini-bow light mod?

I've alreay posted this in the lighting forum but here may be a little closer to home. I'm gonna set-up a 5 gal that I have laying around as a planted betta tank. Right now it's just holding water from when I was using it as a QT for my reef. But I've come across a few post here saying that you can mod the hood to hold two screw-in type pc bulbs. I only have one in there now. I've searched and searched(here and google) but haven't found any details on how to do so. Can anyone plz point me in the right direction, or if you've done this do you have any pics showing the inside of the hood I'd love to see them. I just don't wanna do exploratory surgery on a perfectly good stock hood. I love taking things apart as long as i can put them back together!

well you will need to gut 2 perfectly good stock hoods. this one to remove the light, and then another from which to add the light(s).
