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
