I decided to build a temporary paint booth in my garage to paint parts for my 1979 Camaro and my 1971 C10 truck. Things got out of hand. I build a pulley system to move the wall in a couple of seconds. The set up time for this paint booth is very impressive. This is a must have in every garage if you plan on painting classic cars.

Here is the parts list

3 mil 10×25″ Polar Plastics clear plastic sheeting (I used 4 of these)
1″ pvc and elbows (for the lower frame)
1×2″ wood pieces (for the upper frame)
a handful of Screw Eyes
a handful of Open S Hooks
2 Hitching Rings with square plate (the hoop)
3/16″ 100′ Polypropylene diamond braided rope (depends on how many walls you need)
3/4″ Koch single sheave pulley (depends on how many walls you need)
1″ 4×8′ Polystyrene foam board cut to fit your doorway
20x20x1″ True Blue Fiberglass House filter (for the fans)
20x24x1″ True Blue Pleated Media Furnace Filter (for the foam door)

    Would like to see it in action as i had a similar idea, which was to run filters in my windows and just have an extraction fan , but now contemplating whether to build an extra one car garage designated for painting and maybe do a fan pushing air in . But if this setup is fine then why go to the extra expense ? Thanks for the ideas

    I really like this. My brother has been getting into refinishing furniture, and I like to wash our cars in the garage since our driveway sits in the sun for most of the day.

    Are you concerned about the fans igniting the paint fumes? Thanks for your video.

    'So, unless I overcomplicate things, like I always do…." We have that in common. My wife asks me 'Why do you always have to work on all your stuff? Why don't you just buy new?' I tell her because that's boring. I like building things and learning when I can. This video is exactly what I was looking for. It reminds of roll curtains I used to install as window treatments for homes in FL. Thanks for sharing.

    Doesn’t that get in the way of a garage that opens up all the way?

    Good job but are you not concerned about dust coming from the ceiling? Why not also cover the ceiling?

    Exactly what I needed! Was designing something like this in my head. You just saved me so much time !!

    CLICK BAIT CONFIRMED. NOT A FAST SET UP . UNLESS YOU'RE A PRO. THIS WILL TAKE A NORMAL PERSON MORE THAN A DAY TO FIGURE OUT.
