This question will more than likely be for those that have spent many hours over the years chasing thin spots and other flaus. I have changed some time ago to the "Daylight" type tubes with the higher lumens and the blue'er light. Now was able to put in double the number of tubes. Much better My qustion now is locating the thin spots hiding undeneath, the type of light to use?

I have done a little reading of the Xenon vs. LED that the detailers use.

Just tired of getting a tractor outside and seeing the spots of thin paint. Enough to want to make guy go back to painting nice flat surfaces. Thanks for your input.

The newer style light fixtures have reflectors on the tops so I adapted my own using tin foil cheap way to get a little more light out of it ... just what I did seemed to help

I use normal fluoresent tubes, 10 double tube fixtures in a 30x30 area. No problem painting, I do use a drop light under the tractor to make sure I haven't missed anything. Fluoresent will show about any defect including small scratches in the paint, and is sometimes better than sunlight which has too much glare.
