    Frosted or clear LED light?

    Like the title says, should I get frosted or clear lense LED lights?

    What will these lights be used for?

    Garage lighting, working on the car, I also detail in there. However I detail with the door open. I have the current lights on and notice when they are off. I currently have a few regular tube lights, but two fixtures don’t work I think because bulbs are are. I told myself I wouldn’t replace those bulbs, and just get new led lights.

    Ah, ok.

    Your original title didn't mention it. No opinion here per say.

    I'm a guy with no garage that works in the sun. (The original LED light). Lol

    4 footers?

    Feit makes ballast bypass LEDs to retro t8/t12 lights. They work great.
    I got mine at Menards. They have a frosted lens

    Yes 4 foot. Are they plug and play, or do you need to remove the ballast?

    IMO, frosted. The clear ones you can actually see each LED reflect and it gets distracting when you’re trying to see defects on paint.
