Thanks for the comments guys.

So, I pulled the existing wiring out and threw it away. Bad move, the garage is without power for 3 weeks now :smt003 :lmao

For the external wiring I used cable trays but I chose to mount them on the walls instead of hanging them from the ceiling. It gave the garage an industrial look.

Image
Image

All lights concentrated in one location.
Image

Connected and tidied.
Image

Cables roughly in their locations
Image

and tied in place.
Image
Image

New fluorencent lamps relocated near their initial positions.
Image

Control for the door motor located near the runner rail.
Image

Control unit pluged in.
Image

This panel will house the controls for the 8 lights, 2 fans and the doors. All will be controlled via a couple of remote controls as well as from push buttons on the face of the panel.
Image

And finally, I added a dedicated light for the lathe which except from its function looks very cool, don't you think?
Image
Image

Well, this side of the garage got a bit "heavy" but is out of sight if you're not looking up :smt003 :smt007

Popped in to see Doros last night, the quality of his workmanship amazed me. Cable trunking with all the cables side by side, none passing over each other. For most people, hammer in cable clips would suffice.
He takes the saying "If you are going to do a job, you may as well do it properly" to a new level. He was even considering taking material off both edges of the door when cutting them down, just to maintain symetry with the internal strengtheners. Total respect :smt012 :smt012.

........... Sadly it's still a Less Car, More Garage situation. I think I'm done with the lighting for the moment.

Garage perspective transfered on the panel.
Image

indicating which lights are on.
Image

A bit complicated inside.
Image

Everything controlled by this tiny remote located on the entrance door frame.
Image

The garage at night (sounds nice, doesn't it?) A real insect magnet.
