A good way to test for proper seal is to use banana oil,it has a really strong smell and if you smell it through the mask the seal or mask is not right.This is the method we used to test our gas masks for 20 years in the army. AND WE MADE DAMN SURE THEY SEALED!!

I believe that is what the odor capsules that are in the North respirator package.

1) About 10 years ago when I was taking body shop classes at a community college as a means of working on my cars (which, by the way, might be a way for you to access a down draft paint booth) some of the latest in paint technology that was being discussed was water-based automotive paint. I don't remember much more than that, but an internet search seems to point towards "Auto Air Colors" as a company that is making this kind of paint.

2) Not too long ago there was a discussion on here about Rustoleum applied by roller. The technique involved a lot of sanding, but maybe it's easier - particularly with wet sanding - to protect against dust particles than vapors.
I tried that on a old hood, TOO Much Sanding !!! I am too lazy and old for that. I have a pretty good compressor and I bought a "Fair" $100 Cheap HVLP gun. I am going to spray it with that John Deere " Black Blitze" for a Old Flat Black Hotrod look
