    I'm jealous! A 40 foot wide building here would be 10 feet underground, 10 feet on stilts. LOL

    Good luck with the project!

    My basement shop is rather small, but several years ago, I replaced the old 4" fluorescent lights with LED tubes. Amazingly brighter. I had a 2-light fixture over my 2nd bench, which I initially had 60 watt CFL bulbs, which I replaced with 60 watt LEDs for somewhat better brightness. Last week, Costco had a 2-light bank of LED bulbs on sale for ~$20. I bought one and installed it "just to see". GREAT increase in brightness! If I were building a shop, I would not install anything but LED lighting. The idea of mounting the lights at about 8' for an auto shop is experience speaking! The color rating of 4-5000 Kelvin is very good for work areas, and for general husehold, for that matter!

    Check out Hyperion LEDs on Amazon. Priced right, no ballasts, long lasting, bright. Can get 4' or 8'. We replaced all our fluorescents 2 years ago. I was constantly replacing ballasts and bulbs. Haven't touched these. Plus instant on even in freezing weather.

    Early in the thread I had just installed LED lights in my garage. They have completely met expectations and I’ll buy more as we expand the garage and shop.
