I am thinking of trying out light painting with cars.

Never attempted before.

How would this light work out?

It would work okay. Depending on what you are doing but not as bad as many others. You will have to paint the car and do a bit of photoshop for it. And you will fine out that the light is not all that bright.

What light would you recommend?
I'd like to stay under 100$.

A big, bright shop light from Home Depot.

If you are looking to light paint its the wattage that's king.

Higher wattage would be better because it'll be brighter, correct?

I use strobe. Anything will do since you are just going to multipop anyways.

Not always but generally.

Ah okay, I was thinking an led panel because they give good continuous lighting.

They do but have some downfalls. Non even light is one and color is another.

That's a dangerous assumption.

There are books, websites and web tutorial devoted to properly lighting an automobile for photography.

Light painting is one option but it has its own set of requirements. The wattage and/or type of light are not the first requirement on most lists I've seen.

It may be useful for you to do some research on the techniques and suggestions from those practiced doing this type of photography.

Oh. Guess I'll have to look at some photographers that do light painting.
I've seen some where they used a Cooper Lighting work light and the results were pretty nice.

I've read some people use flashlights like MagLites.

Would those work if I want to try painting cars or would something else be better?
