The cabinet company delivered the prefinished cabs in the wrong color, so the GC asked me to repaint them on site. Was going over a catalyzed lacquer pigmented and clear coat. Used Stix primer, then 2 coats advance satin super white.

Hung the ten doors and shelves by cup hooks hanging between two step ladders

Used zip wall to totally enclose the work area.

The 8" ventilator from harbor freight sucks out all the overspray quickly. Easy to divert to where you want with long hose.

Love the flash on the flat screen on this one!

Various finished shots.
Sprayed it all again with the Titan 115 set on 6 stage. Thinned typically about 10% with water. Using #5 needle setup.
The downside was the client put things on the shelves about 4-5 days later, and some areas left marks. I had told them to wait longer on their fireplace mantle in other room, but unfortunately they didn't wait as long on this area. Minor scuffs in a few places, but since they're going to be covering with stuff eventually anyways we decided not to try to touch up.

nice job...did you use a filter for the exhaust 8" hose? I've seen those setups and they don't sell round filters for the fans. they should!

I do have a filter for it, probably got at an auto parts store. However it really cuts down on the draw, so I put a tarp under the hose on the outside of the house and double checked after shooing a while. No overspray dusting problems. If I was doing a big job it might be more of an issue. I didn't use the filter on this one.

I'd be concerned about getting paint dust inside the blower. that's a good place to put a filter.

Nice little job there. I love the set up too, it looks efficient.
It was a great little workspace. Nice to be able to take over a good chunk of room to make a spray booth.
