      so I thought these led bulbs were amazing. couple friend suggested these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PG3RLH7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and its now even brighter in the garage during the daytime let alone at night. can see on every side of the car im working on and my tool box without using a flashlight. not the most OCD friendly set up but works so good.

      GAH! WTH man... I am not generally OCD but this ceiling light install is nutso.

      Was there really no way to install these in another way to at LEAST make them all square to the room/walls/etc?

      If its about mounting points... get some 1x wood, mount THAT to the ceiling with whatever span you need to hit joist AND fixture mount points then mount the light fixtures to those.

      Nice. Did you go with the 5000K or 6500K temp?

      incase anyone is interested i ordered a set of the 6500k to compare to the 5000k i ordered before. personally i cant tell the difference in brightness. however the 6500k put out a more blue tinted light while the 5000k is more white. personally i like the 5000k more.

      yes the setup is still wacky but it works with my limited outlets and the cord lengths so i dont care

      overall for the price and easy installation i think they are great for a small garage setup like this

      Lighting can be fixed. Order the 6 or 8 pack of LED lights that are 4' long; about $50-60. 2 light socket to electrical outlet adapters. Boom. Plenty of light, regardless of color. Grey walls with a blue & black racedeck floor would look nice. ;)
      this. highly suggest these from amazon. the whiter light is the 5000k and the more blue is the 6500k. i prefer the 5000k myself. plenty bright without being completely over bearing on the eyes

      again i apologize for the lights being all over the place. i am limited on outlets and space so i wanted maximum light output regardless of looks
