Run That FAN Thing Again 4 Me Please

I used three box fans blowing air in through furnace filters and one box fan sucking air out through a filter. This kept the booth pressurized and the dust down. Worked pretty well if I do say so myself. The doors were made using a wood frame and were covered in plastic sheeting.

Make sure you have a good fresh air supply for breathing too. You don't want to breath the iso's in modern paints because they can kill you.

Good luck.

Hi Centerline

Nice job on the spray garage booth.

Maybe I'm 2 ol' for this stuff ~ but I don't get the filter and where you placed 'em where your fans R

Some Question(s) Please;

1. Why Furace Filters? Are they the BEST 2 use ?

2. Are Box Fans the most reasonable ones to buy ?

I want to paint my Harley and then brake-down the spray booth.

Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
