New and making a permanent paint booth

Hi I am new here and I think I will be around here often now.
My name is Chad I currently work in construction and do small paintwork on the side. As of now I am making my own down draft paint booth. I have a devilbiss SRI pro gun (just purchased) and have been using crappy shop line paints so far.

Currently I am looking into using SPI clears and 2k primer. Anyone here a dealer or can I order directly through them? I'm also going to start using DBC for a basecoat since there is a dealer in my small town.

I'm a big car enthusiast and own a 2006 Mistubishi Evolution IX MR. She's a beauty and fast. This car is an autocross monster on 275/40/17 semi-slicks.

I'll upload some pics of the paint booth build and car soon. Really just looking for an SPI dealer on here for a start haha =]

Hi, welcome aboard .

To get the finest primers and clears imho, call Barry or Andy at 706-781-2220. They can tell you if they have a dealer near you, and if they don't they will take your order over the phone and ship it to your door w/FREE shipping.



I assume you are building a down draft booth? Care to give details how you are going to hook a fan up to it?

thx.

Okay thanks for the tip. I'll give them a call monday.
There is actually multiple runs under the floor that will go into a ductwork system with an adjustable speed explosion proof fan. The floor is still getting concrete on it. I'll update it as I move along. I already have the light fixtures and rest of the OSB sheathing. After I get that on I can sheet metal the walls and concrete the floor. Should have it done in the next 3 weeks. It's hard to get time on it with a 2 month old son and working full time and autocrossing 3 regions
