    All mounted and wired 2 new outlets for the rear lights. I'm gonna install one more perpendicular to the 4 right in front where I put another outlet in. Lighting should be perfect for me then.

    Re: More lighting!

    Hello everyone! New to the community and first time posting. Jeremy. Lights look awesome and set up is very nice and clean. I wanted to see the process and how you came to decide on this setup and influencing factors as I am currently in the market for better lighting. I have already ordered and waiting for a detail light from scangrip which has had some very good feedback besides the price tag. I wanted to see what you or anyone else could enlighten me with info or knowledge on his product. Thanks!

    Can you explain by what you mean when you say they are "directional"?

    I was wondering about that myself.

    On each bulb at the end on both sides (end caps) there is a little button you can depress and turn the bulb maybe a 1/4 turn one way or the other. You do both sides the same and they lock in place. So, instead of the light transmitting straight down, you can angle it to either side. I have all the outside bulbs that are closest to the walls facing straight down. The inside bulbs are all facing towards the middle of the garage where I detail. I have no dark spots or shadows this way in any corner or spot of the garage.

    Hope this makes sense.

    I have found that not all bulbs are like this. Not sure if it matters or not but mine are industrial quality. I client of mine works for a company that installs industrial lighting in factories and companies to meet and exceed lighting regulations. I got them from him. The only one that is not from him is the 8ft one in the front. Those bulbs are not directional. Just straight down.

    Thanks for the clarification, Jeremy. I had no idea you could angle fluorescent bulbs, as it's been years since I had to buy new ones.

    Re: More lighting!

    Which is more desirable for detailing, Crystal White Glow (5000K) or Daylight Glow (4000K)?
