Adding to what Brian said about trash comming from somewhere. I've found that, for some reason, if you have an air leak in th' booth, overspray will gather, and stick to the surface adjacent to the leak.
While painting one hood, may not be enough overspray to show up. Black against a white background, it may be there if you look closely. around doors, switch covers, windows etc.

Good thinking.

I also know that no matter how good you seal it that paint gets into places you would never think. I remember painting a Firebird in the garage. I taped up the door leading to the kitchen thinking it was sealed up good. The next day I found overspray on the dishes in the cupboards! I have learned a lot of respect for this stuff.

If you are spraying in your garage you be sure you family is FAR away from that house. And be sure to air it out GOOD before they are allowed back in.

I actually did find some black mist around a switch cover in the booth, so I will be taping around all of them super good too. As far as any fumes in the house, its really a non issue, those fans are sucking them out and clear to the next county... Hence the dust again!! LOL

I'm not worried, I'm operating in a safe manner, I can live with a little dust I wont be doing any paint work that doesnt get buffed out.

Thanks for all the thoughts and ideas on this. Going to bed now, havent had alot of sleep this weekend, guess I'll just have to sleep at work tomorrow!! haha

Had A Brainstorm !

close off the air intakes I have now and install new ones about 1 foot off the floor in the same locations just low. Only use the low fan while painting and dont leave the booth until final coat flashes.

Good Plan??? TIA

I relocated my air intakes to a little above ground level yesterday and sealed off the old ones. All I need now are some high quality filters and I think I will be in business! Painting the hood, decklid and cowl panel from my 71 Nova, probably within the week. I will again be bo going with SS Urethane Black. I think the new vent system will work much better as it wont be pulling air OVER my work, and of course I will wet the floor down good as always. Will keep ya posted.

Took this yesterday of my completed Camaro hood. Thanks so much for all the tips and advice! This forum is the best!

I think it looks awesome, and I love that it's inside the house with all the other treasures.

It would be in the living room if I thought I could get away with it!
I was going to put it back on the car but I can't bear to put it out in the elements yet! LOL

Thanks for all the great tips I know I will have many more q s.
