Here's a tip, you'll get more help on here if you say all of your primers, clear coat came from SPI. You'll get answers to your questions an nobody will complain about what kind of paint your using. And if your using an HF purple spray gun "DONT SAY A WORD" IMO

booth rental ?

Sometimes you can find a spray booth you can rent for half a day. When I lived in California, there were a couple backyard booth' you could rent for $ 50 a day. Guys that worked somewhere else but did body work at home part time. they had white painted walls , lots of lights, fans, Etc.

One tip about fans. A fan blowing in creating positive pressure is better than a fan blowing out which causes negative pressure in the "temporary booth". Negative pressure will cause dirt to be sucked through any cracks or air spaces there might possibly be and onto your new paint.

By using a fan blowing in, any of those cracks will be pushing possible dust out instead of being sucked in. You should still use a filter before the fan and one at the outlet to filter any paint that would be blown outside.

Hi Joseph,

I no longer live in Cypress. I'm in Sugar Land now. What are you questions? I'll email you too.

I got plenty of replies and help. Didn't matter what paint. The paint was all 100% Summit line. The car came out show quality, even though that's not what I was after, once my buddy cut and buffed the paint to get out the dirt / dust.

Here's a tip. You don't need to buy the most expensive gun and paint to have a show quality paint job. Just determination.

If it was me I my self have sprayed in my garage at home. I put in 2 small air ducts from my ceiling at one end and put a fan to suck out the overspray at the other end and it worked good. Also I painted in early evening so my neighbours didn't complain about the smell. If you do it your way only use exhaust fan no intake and open door about a foot nd buy some cheap furnace filters to put over all the air intake .

Great vw. Bag of cement required to keep the front down.
I painted lots of motor bikes and two or three cars over the years with mixed results while picking up tips from a guy who had a bodyworks.( still getting tips from the same guy) Then i undertook to spray my Mustang and spent months prepping it . I was pleased with the end result but if it had been my first major project i would have failed i think.
Everyone has a different skill set though.
It is so easy to make mistakes on your first job.I would find some panels or an old dirtbike and use them as a trial to develop a technique of handling the gun at the right speed and distance from the surface with the right mix in the gun with the right settings. Runs, drips, dry paint, humidity blisters, accidents with hoses all need to be considered as i have scored in all of these.
Cheers
Al.
