What kind of lighting do you guys use in your garage? I have a 1500 watt work light that I use but the ceiling has 2 light receptacles in it that just have 60 watt bulbs in them now. I want to swap out those lights for some good lighting. I work on my cars and other peoples cars a lot and usually do it at night since I work 2nd shift. I would kill for a good lighting set up out there. I was thinking about just throwing up some florescent fixtures but I wondered if there would be shadows? I've also pondered putting some lights or mirrors down by the floor to help light up underneath the cars but I figured both of those would be a hassle. I'd end up breaking the mirrors and I think lights near the floor would shine in my eyes while I was under the car. What do you guys use and what works best?
pictures would be awesome

I've got 8 double bulb floresant 4 footers in my 3 car garage and I like it.

+1, I have the same set-up except I have 6 instead of 8 with one placed over the workbench. I also bought a shop light with a 60ft reel that hangs from the ceiling so when I'm done I can roll it back up nice and neat, same with my air hose.
My garage is a two car, 24" x 30" and it's nice and bright in there so I can see to work on my camaro's.

I put up 3 of those flourescent work shop lights they sell at the hardware store for dirt cheap. And then get a good flourescent drop light to put where ever you need light. The mirror thing won't work-drop lights do. The regular light bulb drop lights get too hot and are a fire hazard.
