for me no red lights ever
master bus fader always at 0db

i like to leave headroom in the beginning and work my way up during the mix
if I don't get to the top i'll use the L2 until it hits almost zero on the masterbus and try to stay away from the mastering-engineer's job.

when the mix is 'done' an i hit some occasional peaks in the busses i first try if i can get rid of those by inverting the phase on one of the channels that causes the transient, just during that peak. often this can do the job. if not i need to automate volume at the offending transient.

most of the time it's bd or snare toghether with bass or vox causing the peak.
