Viking spray booth

I know someone who has viking spray booth for sale. It's cross-draft spray booth. He has taken it apart. He wants $1500 for it. Is it pretty good deal or should I pass?

Does it come with a fan, electric motor, lights, are the fixtures good (glass over the lights), how are the ballast's, does the bottom of the side panels have rust, (many are rusted out), are the hinges on the doors in good shape, (heavy doors, they wear out in time), are the panels straight (often when they take an older booth apart, they just throw the rough pieces on the floor), does it have all the hardware like exhaust stacks, and even the nuts and bolts to put it together, some booths have over 3,000 nuts and bolts, could very easily be a 3 to $600 bill to buy just the nuts and bolts.

If you can answer these questions...I can tell you if it's a good deal or not.

Yes, see it in person, ask the seller the same questions I asked you, if the report comes back good, it's a great deal, if things are missing or broken like the glass covers for the light fixtures, they are expensive, talk him down. How old is the booth as well, if it's over 10 years old, expect alignment issues when putting it back together unless he took it apart properly and labeled every panel as to the placement, just like you would when doing a restoration (tag and bag parts).

Hope this helps
