Working on it

today I finally got to start my paint booth. I've got two c channel at peak I will put a plate of plate glass the entire 8' with it. Wing 12" wide. Two 4' LED will slide on the top of them giving me 8' of bright lights. I'm also hanging that smooth white wall paneling where the seams will be joints without any gaps what so ever. I then added a wall and walk through door that way if someone walks into the shed, they won't be walking into spay booth. I am cutting a 4' wide and 2' tall opening at the wall and install a box one the outside to install one or two fans giving me a 2x4 filter area. My question is, should I take out the middle glass and take out the bottom piece of screen door and install a big filter housing giving me 2/3 of the door for a inlet filter. Or use the window? I'm also wanting to know best location of exhaust filter If I put filters in walkthrough door, should I do it at the bottom on wall strait across from it or the side across from the window The side of shed I am closet to will e my paint mixed, pouring, and social media room between Coats it will be air conditioned and heated Thanks guys
I hope ole they didn't cut those pieces of glass for my lights. I'm making sealed boxes for them. They are LED Not the bulb type led either. So no internal spark but I still rather in a box sealed up. Let me call and change dimensions
I just got to add the plentum to the backside as low as I can get it, which will attach to the outside leaving my exhaust filter bank flush with wall. It will be 28" x 48".
I am am still undecided if I am going to make a wall size intake filter bank between the studs and use two slots which will leave me an 34" x 84". Or going directly in the peak of roof with a 10" x 86" Intake filter and two triangular Intake filters above door and angles wall, which will pull in climate controlled, dry air.
Then em find a good floor to put down... would a thick epoxy floor be ok? Or is there something I should do? I want to be able to wipe my whole booth down and mop clean.
then its just adding my Brick paneling in my fresh air side and shelves and then get busy time.
this is why I love this forum!!
and the good thing is, with my plentum I built for window, i I will leave it installed be able to open window and flip a switch and have a 2' x 2' paintbooth for small items and airbrushing.
And I got my plentum built that's going to mount to the bottom of my exterior was and I will mount two fans on back. And have to cut hole and build a filter bed.
Even got a little lean too to keep a lot of the rain off the fans. Once I get another piece of aluminum, I will bring the back down half way
Ever smell silicone before it's completely cured...and no, cured isn't the same as dry. Those particles that you can smell land on parts in your booth and cause fisheyes because the paint can't stick to them and run away like oil and water.
I even temporarly changed up my little turntable table. It used to be solid and way bigger. I noticed where it was solid was slinging over spray back up. So I went with expanded metal and smaller. I never used the whole space at one time and when spinning I couldn't reach the other side.
I built a "plentum" outside the window. A 28x28" box and then attracted a fan on the backside of it basically that way I am pulling volume over the whole filter bed now and not just where a fan could be. He slowed down the velocity a lot too. But the volume of air being moved across the room stayed the same. And the whole filter is being used now instead ofjuat where the fan was in window. This booth actually works really well. I have since did some more modifications and made it a downdraft booth. And that helped out even more. I really don't cut or buff at all anymore. Unless I see some imperfections. These pics are out of the gun And in the picture with the mirrors you can see where in built the duct and now I'm pulling from the ground So when I'm shooting, it's basically all being sucked strait out the booth
And I spy some fish eye...laying your clear down too heavy...looks great other than that...
