Garage lighting.

I am looking at installing LED lighting in a garage 4.5 x 5.5m with centre apex roof to 4m. Ability to have enough for detailing when needed.
Looking for feedback on what anyone has found works good for them.
I have looked at 4x 1.2m 36w strips dual 18w bulb 4000K. which might be enough for a very decent general ceiling light which is the primary concern.

Done enough lighting trials in the past and its murder, so any shortcut I can get now will help.

Of the 2 colour temps available in the lights linked to above I'd go for the 4500K, Neutral White.

Edit: The cooler the light temperature the better for spotting defects on paint.

Or if you want something else, you can check out Jim's unit lightning.

That is a serious setup indeed. That helped with those ceiling panels panels, the ones i was unsure how many to use.
Having the high K installed also was a good idea and I may well go that way after seeing that. the rest was a bit OTT for what i want or need.
Lighting was never given the importance it deserved in homes, something i addressed years ago. The trial and error was a pain, but results are mazing.
This time I want others ideas and its working, so thanks all so far.
