Put box fan by back door and started spraying. Didn’t come out that bad some minor dust that cut very easy. Lower pressure helps on the overspray.

    That must have been a real slow reducer!

    Just shot a few parts outside my shop after a rain the day before to keep from having to cover everything in the shop to keep overspray off. I would rather paint inside the shop to limit trash in the paint more, but these were quickie deals on my sons car trying to get it ready for a car show this weekend. I was pretty happy with how clean they actually turned out.
