Not to pricey if they keep the neighbors happy and the cop'rs away.

T-bucket23 Those open light fixtures down low seem a little dangerous and the non explosion proof electrical boxes would make me nervous. I suppose for a one off it is probably safe enough.

DBM,
Maybe I shouldn't be telling all you southern boys this, but we don't have an evening bug problem here in the NW. No lightning bugs, very few mosquito's or any other kind of flying bugs. Painting at night shouldn't cause buggy problems here.

I was in Mobile, Al doing a job at the shipyard one July. One evening on my way to dinner I drove through a swarm of bugs so heavy I had to use the wipers and washer just so I could see. I couldn't believe what I saw the next morning, that poor car was covered with dried bug juice,don't know how it cooled as packed as the rad was. I dropped it at the rental return and flew home!

Did you look at the link I posted:

This link isn't working, go back to post #10

Any thoughts?

I noticed in your video you mentioned that you hope the negative air machines will capture whatever comes inside when the door is opened. My thinking is, would it be a better idea to perhaps pick a corner, put the door on one side of that corner, and the negative air machines on the other side of that corner? The door and the negative air machines will effectively face each other at a 90 degree angle. The door can be installed so that the part that opens faces the negative air machines, which will immediately capture anything as soon as the door opens and the air rushes in.

Hope my description makes some sense.
That would work. I was thinking about building an air lock room to remedy the problem. Walk through one door and then close it. Then open another door to enter the booth.
I think the biggest flaw is the fact that I cannot drive in and out of the booth. Every time i sand in the booth, the dust is trapped in there with me until I can remove it (as best I can).

evolvo Anyone have an opinion on these for exhaust filters?

xpsyclonex2002 you could always try water based paints??????

OK, so is "filtering the paint" the same as removing the smell of the VOC's? Or does this only remove the over spray from the exhaust? Are the neighbors 100' or 200' away going to be able to smell paint fumes? Maybe some of the more experienced (no offense) painters could chime in on this? Is there a good, effective way to "filter" the smell?
Glad you got your gun issue fingered out!

If you watch the video, youtube has the other videos I made of me spraying the car, and all of the problems I had. My spray gun was "pulsing" when I sprayed my first base coat and caused me a ton of problems. I eventually found that the fluid tip seal had fell out of the gun the last time I cleaned it and was causing the problem. I put in a new seal and it works fine now. The biggest thing I found out though is that my body work looks great. All that block sanding really paid off. Today I spray the rest of the base coats on.
