Lighting in my garage?

I am in the process of building a 22'w x 24' with a 10' ceiling(sheetrocked) addition on my detached garage. I'm looking for some opinions on what to use for lighting. I plan on using this addition to restore an old pickup as a hobby. My 24'x24' garage has 6-8' double bulb flourescents from and old school that were cheap. I cannot seem to find such a deal now. I do not want to spend a fortune but I do want light. Tahnks.:wallbash::wallbash:

In my 20x24 basement shop I installed 12 evenly spaced 4 outlet boxes controlled by a switch at the doors. I use 12 4' hanging florescent fixtures with electronic ballasts. Since they are not permently installed they are easily move where need as the shop evolves or special projects require.

I decided to do this because all of my storage racks, work bench and tool boxes are on casters and as I move them around the lighting requirements changed.

The only thing I would do differently if I did it again run two switch loops so each duplex outlets would be controlled independently in each box.
