Same trick. Use thick black thread or rubber bands. Works great for us.

FO32/765 for the 6500K T-8's, CRI of 71.
FO32/750 for the 5000K T-8's.
The numbers start with F40 if you're looking for Sylvania T12's, but I
don't know if the rest of the numbering scheme is the same.

Correctumundo! In fact, an $8 shoplight fixture ends up costing not
much more than two packages of end clips! We've used this trick of
gutting the old ballast on about four shoplights in the past.
