I purchased replacement Feit LEDs tubes that fit into standard T8 or T12 sockets.  Once I put the first set in I had to run out and get more to re-do the whole shop.

They seem to provide more light than even new fluorescent tubes, the light is cleaner with no flicker and when it's cold, I don't have to wait for them to warm up to get the full light output.

That's what I am waiting for thanks for the comment.  I had planed on mounting the light fixtures today but got called into work early today. Bulbs will be here Saturday.

I didn't convert, but I did just wire my shop and I installed LED shop lights. I have a 24 x 24  building....I installed six of the 4ft double LED shop lights. I was a little worried about not having enough light because I had never used LED's.......but those worries were unfounded....those things are bright !  I'm very happy with the amount of light, and the color. I would definitely recommend the LED lights.

Thanks Rich I need to get fixtures mounted.

Bulbs came today wasn't supposed to be here until Saturday. Tested all 4 bulbs all worked had fixture wired but not mounted on the ceiling. I have to finishing wiring the other fixture and mounting both.

I installed the bulbs this morning. I got to say that this is the one of the biggest improvements I have made to the working conditions in my shed. The shop lights are much brighter and virtually 

 eliminates shadows. Here is the link which I purchase from no tax or shipping charges.
Easy to modify t8 fixtures watch the youtube videos .

I decided to put the old T12 light fixtures in my carport bought new T8 sockets in place of T12 only make t8 leds
