Check you local breathing air supply house. I rented a "six pack" of pressurized certified breathing air bottles for $45. It will last a long time considering the short amount I will actually be using it. I have a discarded Scott full face mask that needed a new face visor. I obtained it from work and the visor was replaced for hardly nothing. If you are going to do a full paint job, and you do not have adequate ventilation a canister mask will fail in short order. Also, there are "NO" filter cartridges that are certified for isocyanates.

how big are these bottles and how long do they last? i am assuming you just set the bottle on the ground and run a hose from it to your mask? do you have some sort of pressure regulator for it?

thanks for the heads up on the filters not being ok for iso's, i didn't know that.

Hey, I'm not sure what both of you are talking about with canisters etc, etc,
BUT it good both of you have a concern about your health.
So let me add this for your consideration.
In an ideal world you would have a full head cover and body cover, not just face mask. Iso's will enter through tear ducts and skin.
If you wash yours hands with Lacquer thinner or Urethane reducer and assume you have no cuts in 15 seconds the solvents will show up in a urine test.

I guess its safer to drink beer and smoke???

i definitely plan on wearing a full suit w/ hood and gloves. there will be no exposed part of my body when painting.

what about sanding though? is the same amount of protection necessary when sanding?

Once paint is dry OK to eat and sleep on.
As with any sanding a good dust mask would always help.
Dried body filler or dried paint is not going to go through your skin but don't help your lungs at all.
