Thanks Neil, my spray tent is just a pop up tent like for camping. so nothing to hang from. I'm going to drape visqueen on either side of my shed. I have six powerful exhaust fans that should help with fresh air.I have 8' pipe clamps I am going to connect together and hang from the ceiling. I should be able to assembly line paint. :eck:
Paint parts on one side of the shed then slide on down the line for drying..

Marc does your paint tent have a place you can mount an eye bolt of some sort in the center......of the peak/roof.....(if its strong enough for the weight).....hang one part at a time too spray, then have a long rack (old closet rods work great).....where too hang them too dry.........wire coat hangers are your friend.........and the tent should help stop overspray all over the rest of your shop and tools....
depending on what i was spraying, if it was low too the ground, a heavy wet mopping on the floor helped keep any dust down as well.........cheers

Moe, you are right about the height, I was trying to cram everything in this paint tent I bought.

I am going to return the paint tent. After talking to you and seeing Clayton's pictures I have a better idea.

I spoke with a buddy of mine at work. my buddy said when the overspray falls down it hardens and then lands on a part, the part turns gritty because of the hardened overspray.
Round two pics to come this weekend...

Thanks

Wow a proper paint booth! I could only dream of that.

Hawk - painting in all the nooks and crannies was fun with parts even at chest height for me. Part of why I thought down low like that might be a pain.

Moe thanks for the tip. I will take another look at it to see if I can modified a bit, or build two trees. It is a little low because I was trying to keep the tree inside my paint tent.

This is why I try to post pictures before I do stuff, to get somebody's suggestions.

Good idea with the swivels, curious how much of a pain it will be painting stuff hanging down so close to floor level? I actually hang all my stuff from fencing wire or straightened coat hangers, about chest height from hooks in the ceiling. When one part is done I just take it to the other side of the shop and hang it off the garage door track. Personally I think you may have over spray issues from one part to the next hanging that close together but that's just my .02. If it works for you, run with it. I really only know three things . . . and one is that I only know three things . . . .

Steve, you are welcome to come down any time and use my shop. Its nothing special. My shop is just a long shed, 12x32 full of stuff. I know it's a long drive, but don't ever hesitate to ask, I would love to hang out...

Thanks Neil for your tips I appreciate it. Lights, I am covered, need sun glasses when you walk in...

I did buy a paint tent to help with overspray,not sure how it will work out. I have overspray filters but not sure where to put them. I have 6 exhaust fans hooked up in the roof but not sure if I should use them to suck up air while I am painting. And I here I could blow myself up with a spark? I really don't want overspray everywhere so I am still trying to come up with a solution to maintain heat, humidity and remove overspray.

And Neil, your right about the north:ohno:
