Sam,

One other option I have is that my Modine is programmable...I can set it up the night before I'm going to paint so it comes on a few hours before I intend to start so that not only should the shop be up to temperature but the metal as well. My big concern was KEEPING the place warm during the shoot since I have to be ventilating very cold air in from the outside. I'm also leaning towards Dan's idea because I have a nice use for those baseboard heaters when I don't need them in the shop.
