Yeah, have been toying with the idea of building a booth straight into the wall for the garage, I picked up an old 14" 3000CFM exhaust explosion proof fan that I could install in the wall and build some walls around it. Heated for winter use of course....if just my garage was bigger.
***disclaimer: do not build your own booth at home! buy a pre-build booth that meets your personal spraying needs unless you really know what you are doing. Many paints are flammable and toxic and need appropriate ventilation.
Lol, as for respirator...I'm a modder by night but by day I make my $$$ as safety consultant. I train clients on proper respirator selection, use, maintenance as well as fit testing :P
Anyways, quick update...progress is slow due to temperatures, it's been snowing on and off the last couple of days....today was the first day it stayed on the ground. Updates are going to get pretty infrequent until temps warm up again.
Anyways, 3 coats of fiberglass and one coat of spot bondo gives this:
I've started on the top panel, cutout for a 120mm exhaust and i didn't like the vent gaps on the side so I'm filling them in as well.
The top panel obviously needs another couple of coats, the front panel will hopefully only need one more fine coat, hard to tell in the photo but the blending of the intakes to the case face isn't as perfect as I'd like it to be.
