In my experience- If you paint catalyzed acrylic or basecoat/clearcoat enamel or urethanes- you will have no troubles. I've painted hundreds of items and many many cars with no problems.( Look at my album to see a couple) I have an inlet filter which is a big furnace filter on one end, a suirrel cage fan sucking fumes out on the other and I ALWAYS wear a respirator. I put up plastic sheet anytime I paint to protect everything else from overspray. The compressor is outside separately to not take in overspray. Clean, clean, clean before you start. I have wet sanded within two hours- but a longer drying time is probably recommended. DO NOT (my opinion) have a source of combustion (heater) in the garage when spraying. Good luck and have fun!
