    I have the same one, works good. The only thing I didn't like was that the lights and the exhaust fan are on the same switch. I fixed that with a mini toggle switch mounted by the rocker switch for the lights. I got it for airbrushing and spray painting but found I use it more as a Tire Razor station, fits in there fine, there's lots of light, and the filter catches all the dust and contains the big chunks, turn off the fan for the wet sanding phase .

          This booth I purchased off Amazon for $89, free shipping. Well worth it.

                Nice paint booth . I plan on making myself one . I plan on cutting the bottom off a plastic tote and wiring a furnace screen and box fan to it , also mounting a flat floor to it .

                    Mark, that is the 67 car Foyt drove. It started out as one of my Brawner Hawk resin bodies. I re-shaped it to what I thought was the Coyote ford dimensions. Used orange instead of Poppy Red originally used. You see varying shades of red/orange on copies of this car. Decals are from Indycals. It is 1/24 and is one of my favorite and fastest Indy cars. It's got a soldered up (repaired) brass tube/Sprintsplus custom chassis and probably a Mark Thomas MT5 motor. I ran it a lot and it has suffered it's share of damage. It's still quick and an easy car to drive.

                    The finished car before it started getting used up

                    This one is the Dubro Sheraton Thompson Special, They offered this vac body with metal injectors and exhaust. It was new and yellow (Ebay), but was in good shape.

                    chassis pix - top car is the hard body. I like Indy from 50-67.

                      I've looked at getting one of those a couple of times, but the buyers on EBay mostly won't ship them to my country.

                      - I had wondered how safe those fans and electrics are with solvent based spray paints too ? thoughts?

                        I've used my home made booth for 2, maybe 3 years and have had no issues. I did give a thought to the fact that paint spray can ignite and the fan could provide the spark, but it hasn't happened. I use at least a double thickness of furnace filters in front of the fan to catch spray. I use lacquer and don't spray any other kind of paint. I don't get much of the fumes anymore and there is no layer of dust on the rest of the utility room in the basement.

                          Thanks for that great response Matt. Seems I really need to find a seller who will send down here then.

                            No doubt that the the nice ready made units are more desirable. I started to order one, but that "I can make something like that myself" attitude popped up and I went to Walmart and spent $14!

                              Couldn’t be more pleased with the ready made paint booth. Super easy cleanup, folds into a small suitcase. Was concerned about enough exhaust, but it’s plenty ample. I made a front flap, so when done painting it closes and with the lights on theres enough heat generated to sort of bake the paint slightly, a bonus! Went down to the body shop supply and picked up a 25’ roll of filter, enough to last my lifetime. My homemade booth went to the dumpster today. It was due for a proper burial after 30 years! I would highly recommend this paint booth.

                                Completely agree, I also have this unit (albeit the one without the lights) and I love it. I crack the garage door a couple of inches and slide the hose vent underneath. Works fantastic, and most importantly for me, it stores without taking much space. Thanks for the tip on where to get new filters, last time I bought replacements from Amazon.
