I really do not have problems with the heat issue. I just make sure that I keep it far enough away from the paint, and I avoid touching the lamp housings.
I love the dual 500 watt model! If both on at once is too much, it has a switch to turn just one on by itself.Too Many ads? Becoming a member of Autopia has its privileges. Sign up here .

Yep, Autopia made me get one! Love it. Especially since I don't have a garage, and have to do my detailing curbside. But I sure don't like what it shows me about the tiny scratches in the Benz paint."The perfect finish is a process and not a product." -- Jngrbrdman, 12.30.02

Just purchased these Craftsman Shop lights and was shocked at how much I missed under normal lighting Now I just need to figure out how to vent the heat out of the garage from 1200 watts! Also gotta remember to put on the sun block

Yeah I agree I have a double garage which is already hot as hadees, I know these lights will really heat things up and with the humidity it worries me a little abotu streaking."I think my blood is a Carnauba Prototype"

Do you guys have any suggestions for halogen / fluorescent lights? I'm in NC too. I do have 2 painter's lamps and I think I have one of the lamps for the duel 500 watt lamps. Is 1000 watts combined the best? I'm looking for something not to expensive, but just right. nwtgy1 exactly which region of Cary?

1000 watts combined is very good. I have flourescents in my garage and often I use the halogens moreUnsuccessful at converting my neighbors to Autopians

Is all I need is the $10 walmart light, or is that just the light bulb?Milano Red 1996 HX Civic - replaced with:
