Hello jonlan

Before addressing anything else your post said you shot some water base rubbed it out and used some steel wool and wax on it. using steel wool on water-based products is a definite NO NO if you end up recoating with water base you will have lots of little rust specs all over the place because steel wool leaves tiny little particle all over your surface even after wiping down your surface many times.
My wife and I are highly susceptible to fumes of almost any kind: smoke, perfume, most detergents, air fresheners. paint etc. We painted out living room with Home depot’s low VOC paint If I remember right is was this one

We were delighted that it hardly had any smell at all, for people who have problems with odors it’s a heaven sent. As for shooting your paint the newer electric spray guns to my surprise work very well with house paint. I’ve been spraying for 45 years so my opinion is not that of a new b to spraying. This is the one I recommend Charles Neil liked it.
