    Default Can I spray without a booth?

    Hi all
    I am new to spray finish, I want to use spray finish on my product because it seems it can save a lot of time when compared to traditional brush.

    My current setup and equipment bought to date are as follows:

    Chicago Pneumatics CPRS10500 43CFM piston compressor
    Ceccato Refrigerator with pre and post filter.
    Kremlin 1014 Spray pump/Kremlin gun
    air pro compressed airline (blue plastic)
    a Hison extraction fan, 850mm

    questions
    1. is it possible to spray paint without a proper booth? I cant put a spraybooth on my property and the workshop is full already, only place I can spare is the assembly area in the workshop to be used as spray area when needed.
    2. I am contemplating to spray paint inside my garage without the fan but with plastic sheets dropped down from ceiling when spraying, has anyone done this or similar setup?
    3. The items I spray are roughly 2m long by 1m wide by 2m high

    Its a journey

    buy a cheap 3m2 gazebo online for under 200 with sides... If you can find one with white sides DO THAT. Easy as...I use mine outside the front of my shed, with three sides on and the open side facing away from the prevailing winds...wind going past sucks the fumes out...

    BUT a lot depends on what you're going to spray, two pack is another beast entirely...

    The Mens shed has a similar setup and we use it on an asphalt drive outside the shed.
    We bought a 3m x 3m gazebo on special for under $100 and then purchase a roll of plastic sheeting and made the sides ourselves.
    For small items we don't bother with forced ventilation but for larger items we attach this blower to the back wall.
    We're not fancy but dirt cheap

    I you want a better class finish ie no dust on the surface, a day when there is no wind is essential.

    Can also recommend the use of a large lazy susan to help with the painting.
    Please note: All advice provided by me should be checked by a qualified professional.

    Thanks guys.
    Looks like Gazebo is the way to go for now... lucky I got a big driveway for a suburban house.

    PITA to setup and dismantle time I want to spray.
