You can't have to much lighting, period. Flourescent is the best. Top, sides, ends, angled...the more the better. Be careful, if you put the wrong kind in the wrong places and you flip them off or on while the booth has enough volatiles in it...KABOOM!

Down draft is the best. It pulls the air down away from your face. Usually requires a pit though. 100 FPM velocity through the floor at any area is a good target design for humans. OSHA may require more in some locals. You can get by with less if the painting is done by robots. Side drafts are next. usually more practical. Again 100 FPM velocity through the wall at any point is good. Keep in mind these are more guidelines for high volume type booths. You can always go the plastic roof and walls with a couple furnace filters and box fans route.

I'm not sure how a verticaly ribbed door might roll up or down, unless you are planning on using it horizontaly? The main thing to try and do is keep the interior walls as smooth as possible. The more ledges you have the more places dust and dirt can collect on.

Bugger,, Now i got to find another use for the rollers,,

That doesn't mean you can't use them for walls. Just spray them down with the hose before you roll the vehicle in for paint.
