    Let us know how it works. I'm thinking that exhaust fan should be closer to the floor.

    I plan on putting my intake filters at floor level maybe idk I put the fan there cause I had an ac unit right there and the hole was already in the wall

    I think @airtimegrafix‌ is referring to an explosion proof fan. All the electrical parts are outside the unit so if there is a spark you wont blow up. I would go down to the box stores and get some FRP sheets and glue them up on the walls. White and glossy for more reflection. If you go with the FRP you wont have to tape the seams and gap around the top. If you need more intake air you can make a door out of filters. And the floor, I used HF interlocking mats and it made a comfortable floor to work in. But if you wet down your booth before spraying that wood floor is toast. Good luck

    The fan will work better lower to the floor. The problem with those small fans is that they don't have a high static rating so they cannot move the particulates out of the booth and your booth will have more trash as a result.

    Ask me how I know?

    Use at least a "damp location" fixture, sealed fluorescent. T8 fixtures are fine
