Hi fb1955.  It is fairly easy to change out that 4 bulb fluorscent.  Here are the steps. First remove the cover and take out the bulbs.  With the power off.  Next undo the wiring from the ceiling.  This next step is where a helper might be needed.  Remove the screws  that are located at either end.  Then lower the fixture to the floor slowly.  If an electrical box is under the fixture you would simply hang your new light from this box following the instruction with the new light. If no box is there you will have to install one.  Use a re-model round electrical box.   See picture.  Once the new box is installed hang the new fixture.  Good luck.  Stukas.  Also if this project seems to much for you go to

I have an ancient 4 bulb flourescent lighting fixture in the kitchen ceiling covered by a plastic fixture that holds back too much light. We need a lot more light. LED a good option? How complex a task? I have good handymen.
