Portable Spray Booth Tent!

Here is a great painting tip from Jason Danhakl...

Here is a great painting tip from an old RC friend of mine...

Jason Danhakl...

Shout out to Bob Sawyer for letting me know about these portable spray booth tents.

As we all know if you want the wind or rain to happen just pop open a can of spray paint. That wheel pant is off my Extreme Flight Owner's Club Laser that had a “hard” landing. It’s a miracle that it even looks like a wheel pant!

I got the tent on Amazon. Uses a 20” box fan and 20” square HVAC filters. I see this rig getting a lot of use soon.

Oh FYI this Rust-oleum Farm paint in Toolbox red matches Red Ultracote like it was custom mixed for it.

What a great article and tool to have. Looking on Amazon there are three sizes available S-M-L.
I also like the exterior light idea.
Thanks for the info!

Wow, that is a really great idea. I have never seen such a thing. It obviously catches a lot of overspray, but I am wondering how is does with the fumes? Does it still stink up the area?

It does an amazing job catching the overspray. But you still will want to have a well ventilated area. The fumes go right through that filter media. I've used it a couple of times now. Once with a HVLP touch up gun and once as the pictures show with a rattle can. I can 100% tell you I'm not that great with painting and this tent has made a huge difference in the finished product.
Thanks Jim for sharing this with the crew!

There are "intrinsically-safe" fans designed for this process of close quarters spraying
The one pictured is not one of them
Fumes an electricity don't mix very well ......

Good information, thanks. Do you have to use a new filter element each different time you use it?

Where would you find such a fan? And a box fan at that? Are they listed as fume proof?

You can Google explosion proof box fans, they are in the $2-3k range and completely departed from an economical hobby spray tent that they are intended for. I use mine in my garage with the door wide open for ventilation.

Absolutely do NOT use a box fan. There will be a big BOOM!
