    What color should I paint inside of my garage for best det..

    What color would be best for a detailing setting? Any colors better for lighting or reflections etc ? My corvette is quasar blue and ss is sunset orange. My next car is possibly an m3 sedan or new 5L which will be white.

    Thoughts?

    White or a light tint will make it bright inside so you can see well.
    Mine is the lightest tint of gray available in dutchboy exterior paint.
    Exterior paint because I wash the car inside too.

    I'd say white is best for maximum use of lighting. Satin or flat finish will help spread the light around and cause less wall glare..imho Dark colors will suck up your useable light and can throw off your visual judgement.. Dark colors can amplify shadows also..
    Some baseboard mounted fluoresent lights will help down low as well.. Another thing that works is flouresent lighting set @ a 45* angle in the corners where the walls meet the ceilling.. Sorry for the spelling..lol The more light you can "bounce" around the better..imho

    You could also set it up like a paint booth with the lighting mounted dirrectly to the walls longitudinally(sp).. That with soft white walls should give good lighting results also..imho
