Hello Everyone, This is my first blog I have ever done. When I was adding pictures to my workshop page I noticed that I did not have enough room to show more than one pic of my spray booth.
In this blog I will show you my current set up. In future blogs I will talk about what I want to do to the spray booth in the future. Hopefully I will be able to post some more blogs in this series as I upgrade the booth.
Ok so lets start with where it is. Our house we bought has a garage that used to be a two car garage, sometime in the past they closed up on of the bays and sided right over the old door. So now it is just a single bay garage door with another bay that does not have a door. For me at the moment that is great to set up a spray booth. In the future we want to reopen the second bay up so I want to set up the spray booth to make it easy to set up and take down and still fit a car in.
Currently I just have some plastic hanging from the rafters on the two sides and front of the booth. Luckly there is a window in the back of bay and I was able to just unscrew the window and put in an old box fan that was given to me with filter attached to the front.
For spraying doors I bought the clips that fit into the opening of the euro cup. I’ve hung a dowel from the celling that I can move out of the way when I need to. This allows me to spray the door from boths sides at once.
In the second bay of our garage I have a 93 Jeep Wranlger. When I am spraying I move the Jeep out so I don’t get any overspray on it and it also lets me have some room to put the stuff to dry. In the next picture if you look close you can see the nifty drying rack I have the doors hung on. It is a laundry drying rack that I barrow from my girlfriend. I’ve found that it is light, easy to set up, and fits the doors perfectly.
For my spraying I use an earlex hvlp gun. So far its has worked great for me! I would recomend it to anyone looking for an entrylevel hvlp gun!!!
This is what I have so far for my spray booth. I know it looks pretty sloppy but it work (barely). In my next blog I am going to talk about the things I want to do to upgrade the spray booth.
As the saying goes, “Finishing can make or break the project” I really believe this and want to make the booth the best I can for as cheap as I can.
Hope you enjoyed my first blog.
