Growing up basically in a body shop, I’ve used a 3M brand respirator for years that was designed for automotive and industrial paints. They work great. This pic is like mine, but I also have prefilters installed on it.

But one work of advise, if you have one, keep it in an air tight place. If you have any dust floating in your shop it seems to find its way right to the mask… then when you put it on, the first few breaths is a lung full of dust! I keep mine stored in a gallon zip lock bag.

-- I GIVE UP!!!! I've cut this @!&*!% board 3 times.... its still too short!
