I do it a lot if I am not careful. Because at work I type work orders with peoples names and address. Then the first letter in each word is a capitol. Just habit.

I piss off alot of folks with what I think is humor also.

Know who someone is before you call them something they're not.

What about building a wooden or metal box, and put a series of like a half a dozen furnace filters, say a inch between each one, and butt the box right up to the exhaust fan out side the garage?

Anybody think this would help it out or take care of a lot of it?


There are questions to be answered, and answers to be questioned"

Chassis, Body Jig, Trunk Pan Pics.

Paint booth, Ventilation, etc.

I am not from California, and do not claim to know the laws there, but here is my take on the situation. Make sure that the exhaust air is filtered good. Most people are more afraid of the overspray that can come out than the smell itself. As an insurance adjuster, I looked at many cars that were parked a good ways from any painting, and got it on them.

I know one guy that paints in his garage all the time. He places a damp towel over the exhaust vent of his. If there was any overspray that would come thru, it would stay on the towel.

In my experience, when you can demonstrate to the neighbors that there isn't going to be a problem of paint getting on their stuff, they are satisfied.

The hospital I work at has had air quality issues and when we have odor problems from exhaust and other things we use charcoal impregnated filters. They may not kill all the odor but they may knock it down to a tolerable level. You may want to run some ductwork from your exhaust fan to above the roof level were the wind can disperse it better also.

Two cheap ways to do this.

One buy an old time sprinkler the kind that fans and set in straight up position at the exhaust of fumes.

Second option is go to jobber and have him order from any warehouse air filtrations Styrofoam exhaust filters they come 20x20 and I think 25X20" build a wooden box to hold them. About $3.00 each and only need one.

Or do both of the above.
