Seeking plans on how to build a automotive spray booth

A discussion started in 2002 but continuing through 2017


Q. I am seeking plans on how to build a automotive spray booth, preferably side draft.

Thank you for your time and help.

I was wanting to know if you ever found out a good way to make a spray booth?

A. There are dozens of articles with pieces of this information available which a literature search of the technical journals serving the painting and metal finishing industry will reveal. But here in NJ, where the regulators understandably want fugitive emissions testing, you might spend more extra money on paperwork for a D-I-Y booth than you'd save by building it yourself. How about a used paint booth? That would have to be cheaper than anything you could make yourself.

Q. We have a crossdraft paint booth with just a water container at the bottom. We don't have a water curtain. During paint jobs, we start the exhaust fan. But, during this process the heat in the booth is too much. So, what should we do to make the paint booth environment suitable for the painter to stay in? Should we use an air- conditioner or anything else?
