The screwfix ones euge07 recommended are pretty awesome in terms of lighting. Mine also survived falling off the garage roof onto concrete without a mark so that's another plus lol

I bought this

https://www.screwfix.com/p/diall-led...-12-240v/7042k

A couple of weeks ago. It's the bottom of the ones that euge07 posted a link to. I really like it, especially as it has no cable to move around. I've found (and had read about before buying) that if you want to see swirls etc then different spectrums of lighting is needed to see everything. I've got lights that are 4000K and some 6-6500k and between them, I see an awful lot. More than I would with just one light. For all they cost these days a couple of different lights may be the way to go.

work perfect mate, the large ones on the stand good for all side panels and rear and front etc, smaller one good for checking angles etc

also I would recommend a good hand held torch,
