Super basic wiring question — upgrading from fluorescent bulbs to LEDs

I apologize if this isn't the right place for this post, but I thought the expertise I'm seeking is likely present here.

I'm trying to replace 6 fluorescent bulbs in this cool Internet Access sign with 6 LED tube bulbs. I'd like to remove the ballasts and just directly connect the LEDs.

I've made a diagram of the previous wiring and what I think the new wiring should be and also made a diagram using CircuitLab.

I'd just love to have someone look over my work and make sure that I've got this right so I don't literally electrocute myself! ⚡☠️⚡


P.S. If this isn't the appropriate venue, I'd love to be pointed to the right one!
