Scaffolding Sun and/or overspray shields is an interesting idea. Like an exterior zip wall or something that could deal with a little wind.

And put spray on tan on your feet if it bothers you
The highlighted part is important. We've done a fair bit of off-season exterior work by wrapping our scaffold in reinforced poly to keep out the weather. The wind can be a real issue, especially up in the hills around here. All that poly can turn into a big sail.

Right products for the job. Like I said, I do this for a living in one of the most miserable climates in America during the summertime.

I see a mass brain drain on PT as of late. Common sense people. If its too hot and you can't figure out how to shade it, don't do it. AND Gough, your right about solvent blisters ONLY if you are starting on a hot substrate. Why I said start earlier. If the surface temperature is cooler in the morning, there is no way you are going to have solvent trap on a properly painted surface unless you are exceeding recommended mil thickness or recoating too quickly. We paint structural steel all day long and solvent entrapment (blistering or cratering) is operator error (either in application or improper prep due to moisture in lines).

We see solvent blisters (on other people's job) with cool substrates, dark colors, and exposure to full sun soon after application. The low humidity in the summer here means rapid surface drying with water-borne materials, which may exacerbate the problem.

On another note, I can't image shooting structural steel all day long in your climate. Woof.

How strict are you with the 'rule' that you shouldn't be painting in direct sunlight when the wood is smoking hot? Have any of you come up with some creative methods to rig up some sort of sun screen? A giant umbrella maybe? Hanging a dropcloth between 2 rolling poles or zip poles? Also, if you are wearing shorts, how do you avoid getting tan lines where your socks are?
I always try and stay in the shade. I'm a one man show so I can usually manage to do so. When i must work in the sun I wear a hat that covers my head and neck area. I had radiation therapy on the right side of my face and neck in 2006 and I am not supposed to be in the sun so this hat keeps the sun off those areas. It also helps keep you cool. There's nothing worse than the sun beating on the back of your neck all day.
