Paintbooth

Hi i am building a home paint booth, one u can take apart and put together, i was thinking about a 12 v radiator fan from a car to pump air in and an exhaust fan blower to pull fumes out is that stupid ?

It's all about how big your painting area is with a vehicle in the booth versus how much air a fan moves...a 12 volt radiator fan won't pull or push very much air....if you had several fans, depending on the size of the booth cavity...that may work.

Another consideration is filtering that air, both incoming and outgoing. A guy I know painted a car in his garage, with an exhaust fan in the window. When he got done, he had a blue fan, and his next door neighbor had blue siding on one side of his house!

If you have a high power fan removing the fumes, and a filtered air intake in the booth, it will pull as much air into the booth as it's removing, so no need for a fan pushing air into the booth. I have a squirrel cage fan that used to be a home furnace fan. It moves at minimum 1000 CFM, and my paint booth is only 2600 cubic feet, so if you can do math, you can see that's a lot of complete air changes. I only have an exhaust fan, and in the ceiling at the opposite end, a filtered intake.

I use 4- 12" x 12" cheap Walmart box fans. I use duct tape to tape furnace filters over them. Two suck clean air in, two suck exhaust out.
