Thanks everyone,  when I wired up the light I did it so I could add additional light if what I planned wasn't bright enough.  I was pleasantly surprised when I flipped the switch.  A friend of ours passed away last fall and he had stockpiled a lot of wood, mostly pieces from his projects.  Anyway I made the selves from that wood.  

 

I've already done 2 brake jobs in there as we were getting it ready and it was so nice to have a place to get out of the elements and not have to seat on gravel to work on the vehicles.

A little late on posting here Bill, but the insulation and lights really look good. I can't seem to ever get enough light in a shop. Very nice lift, did you and plywood to make it wider for GT's?

Looks great !! One can never have to much light in the shop !!

I did the same type of fixtures, but only with T-5 54 Watt HO lamps and ballasts.

And 4 switches, so that I can control how much light I need. Often only one row is on to save electric.

Brian: yes it is 3/4" cabinet grade plywood.  The biggest tractor I've had on it to day is a 50" cub cadet 1050.  It sure makes working on things a lot easier.

 

I agree with you Ken, never enough lighting.  Although so far I've been pretty satisfied with what I currently have.  I have it setup so I can add up to 4 more fixtures.

 

On a side note another a fringe benefit I didn't think about with the shop is I can sit back in my office chair, with the rollup door open drinking a cool one watching the world go by.  I just need to get a small fridge down there to keep the beer cold.  :smilewink:

Sometimes I go to my garage JUST to do this. Life is good!

The other day the wife pulled in the drive and I was sitting out there with my bibbed overalls and ball cap just kicked back in my chair with my feet propped up watching the world go by.  As she turned into the carport I could see her laughing and when she got out she said "If you don't look like those old timers sitting on porch of an old country store."  Yep life is good!
