Skinny; came across this older thread - looks great.
We have a similar setup in our house and was planning on doing the same thing.

Question: How is the light output of the four incandescent can lights compared to the previous fluorescent lights / diffuser panel?

Did you have 3ea single 48" tubes?
We currently have 2ea double 48".

Anyone else have input or link for comparing lumens / light output?

In case your not monitoring this thread I'll send a PM if you don't mind.
EDIT: hope you are monitoring as I don't have the 'required' twenty posts to send a PM; guess I'll be posting all the questions I've been contemplating in my remodel life...

Best,
Steve
