What kind of lighting should we be using for detailing? I find true sunlight to be about the best solution for my poor elderly eyes but I suspect polishing on a black car in full sun on a hot day probably isn't to good of a plan. Fluorescent I seem to miss a lot and halogens seem to have a harsh glare and reflection. 3M makes that sun gun but its probably not intended for full time use. What's that nifty little head lamp light Robert uses?

Led Lenser (http://www.batteryjunction.com/led-lenser-880022.html?gclid=CjwKEAjw-o6hBRDOmsPSjqakuzYSJADR2V3S-dTWFvMhgh_Jx0ebo7xEF-suHK3VXW7bhxnQFVYpuhoCn5Xw_wcB) http://www.batteryjunction.com/led-lenser-880022.html?gclid=CjwKEAjw-o6hBRDOmsPSjqakuzYSJADR2V3S-dTWFvMhgh_Jx0ebo7xEF-suHK3VXW7bhxnQFVYpuhoCn5Xw_wcB

This the headlight I wear, and then I have led worklights that shine up at the car.


Also, try to keep the lighting as direct as possible without a lot of indirect light. Everybody looks good on a cloudy day. I want spot lights on my work so it looks good in the sun.
