the reason I don't like blowing air in is it dries the overspray faster which ends up landing on the finish, or panels that may have already been tacked off.

Using an exhaust fan, and a filtered intake for fresh air will work well, just remember that fresh air will enter anywhere it can (not just through the filter), and may be bringing dust/dirt with it. Not as much of a problem with a permanent booth, but more so with a temporary booth that will have more seams/joints.

True Bob, and with negative pressure...it will find each piece of dirt in every joint, crack and crevice.

Positive pressure (fan blowing air in) will push that dirt/dust out of those joints and away from your paint job. You want incoming air coming in high, and outgoing air low - that will help force overspray down and out of the booth. You do not want blowing air. The incoming air should be diffused as much as is practical. Incoming air should be filtered, and so should outgoing air carrying paint with it.

Search for professional paint booths, and see how they are configured. Same for lighting - you almost can't have too much. Typical furnace filters probably won't filter well enough to keep dust out of your paint job. Most booth filters are much thicker.
