    Yes, every state/city/county/township has fire codes and HVAC codes, etc. that you will have to comply with. These vary, and it's your responsibility to know them. But... guys paint in their garages all the time.

    PS - This is why I like Aqualac. Water based, no VOC's :wink:

    If you are running a business in the city limits, I would stick as close to code as possible. If you like me, outside the limits running a business odds are thin on getting checked. It goes back to what Jim has said about being educated in this line of work. How you say things and how much you say could make or break ya. The only inspection I have had was with the ATF, and she couldn't care less about hydrographics........didn't even know what it was. She said " oh yeah that camo sticker stuff". I said " yea that's it". Things could change and I have to meet code tomorrow ??? But the part of Alabama Im in is pretty laid back for now I guess.... good luck

    Well, I WAS engaged to a striper (one who puts pin stripes on gas tanks for Harley Davidson...) but that didnt work out too well.
  • WileECoyoteWileECoyote Posts: 5,665Member, Moderator, Business Ninja El Moderator
    But yes, i did date a stripper. This is what she looked like when we were dating


    Then a few years after we broke up...

    On an unrelated note, computers and social media are revolutionizing the way you can see how your ex's are doing...

    Bottom line? If an inspector catches you spraying solvent based paint and clears in a "booth" that you built yourself? Then yes he is going to shut you down....Bottom line is that if you have a home built or professional booth setup in an area that is not zoned by the city or county for application of coatings? Then you are in violation of an ordinance and therefore you will be shut down and/or fined accordingly.
    I had a DIY booth when we started out...it sucked but it got the job done for us...now that I have 2 professional booths? There is no comparison in both quality and safety...Safety being they key word that everyone who DIY's a booth or tank seems to leave out of their vocabulary...
