Heres my paint booth

I thought id post some pics of the "home-made" paint booth since im getting very close to the end of my project and ill have to take her down so I can finish mudding/taping/painting the garage walls.
Notice the sign on the door " keep out Shawna (my girlfirend) no boneheads allowed" I got smacked for writing that but she knows i like to pick on her

If you notice its i built it in the 3rd stall of my garage (the stall with the window obviously) i took and old shop fan which i mounted in the window-and i taped some papertowels over the motor to prevent fumes from blowing me up- even though i dont think it would be possible unless I was continously spraying something for 3 hours. But whatever safety first right???

I built the booth before I mud/tape/painted the garage so i could fill all the holes in from the wood. the base around the floor is just wood furring srips from the hardware store "rolled up" in the excess 4 mil plastic and stapled. The door is just a cut out with a "overhang" and I pull it tight over two 3'' wood screws bent slightly away from the door.

Worked great theres also a filter between the window and the fan so that Fumes excess paint or gunk doesnt come out and get on the house or stink up the neighbor hood.

Hopefully this will give someone an idea on what they can build-- I built this alone and it cost under 100.00. Enjoy

Oh and thats Marty hes in charge of "stable security"

Cool man. Only one suggestion i would make. If you want completely clean air dont use home filters. They dont catch as many particles in the air as the paint booth filters

I can understand that. Since its a "practice" car I tried to keep things on a at least a little budget. How spendy are the paint booth filters? when I do my bronco next, since ill be painting the entire rig, ill probobly use something like that...

paper towels do not stop fumes, hell you can breath through them. They may even cause the fumes to condense.

Most likely your fan has a brushless motor and makes no sparks anyway. The switch does make sparks, and if it is a metal blade and contacts the side of the housing it can spark.

It will never blow anyway. Im willing to bet if you held a shop towel between wd40 and a candle it wouldnt ignite. Kinda sounds fun anyway.

There's different air filters. I have some expensive ones for intake and cheap ones for exhaust.
Nice setup btw. It's pretty much what I have. Do neighbors complain about fumes?

I'm in a relatively small town so no complaints, so far. My neighbor to the booth side is cool and wouldn't give a hoot if he could smell them. Did base and clear last night and he said he didnt smell anything

The 3M Filtrete house filters work fantastic and they are cheaper than paint booth filters.

Looks good. Have to build one myself this week (Hopefully? Yeah, probably not going to happen).. I'm still debating a cost effective way to tap into one side of a furnace fan and have it split into two filters on the side.

This is, by far the coolest portable paint booth I've ever seen!

Good ideals at work. The largest Auto Body/paint shop in our area has 8-10 state of the art booths and though he makes his money by doing collision work, he still does custom work as well. We were talking with him one day during a round of golf and he reminisced over his early days. His first paint booth consisted of roll up plastic curtains much like window blinds. He had a portable wall that contained the entry door and filters. He said he turned out just as good of paint jobs in it as is done today in the state of the art facilities.

Don't we just love the EPA!!
