it will always be twice as much and twice as long, you need to build in exhaust fans
That’s a good point. I have a perfect floor box fan I can cut a hole and tape around it. Boom!it will always be twice as much and twice as long, you need to build in exhaust fans
If you're talking about painting the car it's gonna take more than a household box fan! My paint room has a 48" exhaust fan that moves over 17,000 CFM...a common box fan moves 1,100-1,500 CFM.That’s a good point. I have a perfect floor box fan I can cut a hole and tape around it. Boom!
Well. Hopefully I find a car that won’t need paint. If I find one without stripes I may go with vinyl.Seen one on YouTube made out of a wedding tent, box fans and furnace filters. He only used a 30 gallon compressor. It looked like he did a decent job though.
Yes that can work.There’s some talk about south booths. 9x12 plastic sheets for painting are 3 or 4 bucks. I was thinking about building frames with 2X2’s and attaching the sheets and then screw together to make a big tarp box. I think it could be done for $40-$50
Great advice. I also wet the floor down before starting to help keep the dust down. I'm also using a LVLP (A610) gun since I have a small compressor and it's working fine and the compressor keeps up, slows down the painting a little, but that isn't a bad thing.Yes that can work.
I have painted 20 or 30 cars in a garage with few issues. Especially with the modern top stage.paints it is far easier.
Paint early in the morning and the outside winf is calm.
Some dew on the ground helps versus a dry morning.
Temps 65 to 75 degrees.
The car was completely prepped the night before so all dust has settled out of the air, don't blow a bunch of stuff off and stir it up.
Do a final wipe down with a tack rag.on day of painting.
Ensure your compressor is drained and hose is dry, the night before
Use air/ water filters on your gun.
Use an HVLP gun and set it up carefully. This keeps the airborne particles down to a minimum. Pressures should not be very high.
If it gets foggy in the room, stop and.let it settle down or adjust your gun pressure may be too high.
Readjust your gun between base coat and clearcoat. You want a finer mist with clearlcoat and might get a bit more airborne particles. Progress methodically, let the fog settle some if noticeable.
Expect to get a little trash in the paint and you will be able to sand/polish it out of your clearcoat.
Use a good respirator. Don't skimp.
Take breaks and don't have anyone interrupt you once you start.painting.
Be careful with electrical appliances and fans as the fumes when spraying may be combustible.
Just go slower if needed but with HVLP. this is rarely an issue like it used to be.
Good luck and have fun. This is the one of most satisfying accomplishments you can achieve in your car work journey.
