    Hey guys I’ve been looking for a good drop light that puts out decent light but doesn’t heat up. Maybe l.e.d. I’ll be using this drop light for interior work only. I don’t currently have a shop or garage so my buddy lets me use his shop as greatful as I am that he lets me use his shop his lighting isn’t adequate enough to light up interiors or to do proper paint corrections. I was thinking a double headed stand with two 500 watt lamps. I understand it’s going to put out a ton of heat which is ok for the winter months but will that be good enough light to see swirls or any other defects? I’m currently borrowing a stand with two 500 watt lamps I’ll be trying them out for the first time tomorrow. I’m just looking for a little advice on some other options if there are any for future reference. Thanks in advance.

    They make corded flourescent and LED lights that might work. Also, there are clamp-on lights that might serve your purpose, but you’ll have to wrap the clamps with foam to prevent scratching.

    I just got the thought that you could put one of those clothes hanger bars on the hooks in the back, and hang the corded light from that.

    Hope this gives you an idea of something that will work for you.

    These are the best interior lights i have ever used

    Re: Drop lights and work lights

    I just looked at some led clamp lights and I don’t think the ones I saw will put out enough light. The last vehicle I detailed at his shop that included interior would I had to use my buddies drop light. He has one of the old school ones that’s basically a bulb with a cage around it. It put out the amount of light I needed it too but it got much too hot after a while and I had to keep shutting it off here and there. Because it was too hit and I had it hooked up to the hanger hooks I didn’t want to do any damage to the plastic with the heat. Could you share a link so I know exactly which lights you are talking about? The ones I come across look like desk lights.

    Do you run that light across the ceiling from door jamb to door jamb? Do you pad the hooks or are the ones on it good?
