working on a lighted sign question - Sat May 26 2012 01:44 PM

I purchased this sign today. The guy I got it from tried to fix it. He removed all the screws to the reflector thinking everything would lift out so he could access the wiring and balast. That didn't work doesn't come apart. Now the it doesn't go back together since everything behind the white reflector moved when screws were removed. The metal housing is all spot welded together. No access to the workings.

has anyone ever worked on a light like this that could point me in the right direction to get to the wiring of this. I'd love to make this thing work again. Just not sure if I want to drill out the spot welds to be able to remove an end cap. I can't believe this is not put together with screws or a spot with access to the wiring. or am I missing something/
