Can this DIY hood be done or is my thinking wrong?

Since i dont know much about wiring flourescent fixtures, and i
want to make my own hood for a 30x12x18high, and i want
four t-8 bulbs that are 24inches to be fitted into the hood.

I was wondering if i can do this:
-buy a 4 foot, 4 bulb shop light ( i would buy a two foot shop light, but
 i dont think they exist with 4 bulbs)
-exchange the ballast to one that can run my desired configs of light
 i want
-take everything out of the shoplight and reassemble it into the
 DIY hood
-rearrange the endcaps that were previously 4foot apart in the shop   light
and  fit it two feet apart under my DIY hood
-add a power cord instead of wiring it into the wall

Is this a possible way to do this or is there something wrong with my
idea, if you know anything about this, please help me, the more
i get in reply the more i will understand..........THANKS
