Thanks for the info. The second question I have then is orientation of the lights on the wall. I noticed swvalcon has his wall lights running vertically (which makes sense, I guess). The cheapie lights I'm planning on going with are 4', 2 bulbs per fixture. My plan now was to mount to on each wall so that one will provide illumination for the front half of the side of the car, and the other the rear half of the side.

My question is will these things be blinding me from the wall opposite me as they're shining right in my face, like my fluorescent shop treble light does? Or is that a phenomenon that's only occurring (such as in the latter instance) from the stark contrast from a bright light in an otherwise dark room? In other words, when the entire room is bright are these side lights not as blinding?
