suggestion on supplied air system

I don't know why I'm bothering, after painting many many cars and building dozens of fiberglass kayaks without any breathing protection at all. I began using a respirator a few years back, but the damage is already done. anyway…. I'm now looking at purchasing a supplied air system to paint the last car or two that I will likely ever paint. I'm looking at Breath Cool and Hobby Air. both similar priced, but I think I like the hood on the Breath Cool a little better……. or is there another option I haven't seen yet?

Thanks in advance,
Russ

So you painted and did all that work without so much as even a half faced respirator?!

I'm afraid so. building kayaks in the 70s I recall sticking my head inside the two freshly laid up halves to glass them together. many of us weren't as smart as we thought, at 20 years old.

What I found is that the hood and air supply almost needs to be obtained seperately so you get the hood that works for you..
