    Re: LED v.s. Fluorescent lights in the garage

    If you can spend the bucks go with HO T-5s at 4100k. The AG "Show Car Garage" is lit with T-5s and its like daylight inside. Forget leds with a 10' ceiling, too high.

    Dear Todd

    That's a very tidy and well-lit shop you have there.

    You and I have the same pressure washer.

    I have two 8' tandem T5-HO fixtures in my 20x20x9 garage with 4100K bulbs (8 total), and its like daylight in there!! 40,000 lumens total light output. I've actually had neighbors stop by and ask me about them.

    I bought them at Home Depot for a little over $200, with bulbs.

    Re: LED v.s. Fluorescent lights in the garage

    My offset garage/shop is only usefull for motorcycles. Everything else detail wise is under a tarp outside. Power to garage = one heavy duty chord from house to cord reel with a industrial two plug outlet. one outlet to a surge bar the other for teh big fan or what have you. Beer frige and everthing else is run off the surge LOLOL. So for lights just to hang out,, I use little christmass lights. I have a 500Watt spot, clip light and drop light for the rest. LOLOL here is a pic at night after a ride w/ friends:

    As you see the spot does pretty good LOLOL. turn it off and the christmass lights are very relaxing.
