The cuda is a 67 we started by replacing d/s floor pan trunk pan and extentions, added homemade subframe connectors, mini tubbed, spring relocation, cut and replaced all rot mostly in the engine bay, then sanded every inch of paint and shot with epoxy primer.The last pic is Dan(cars owner) after 40 hours of sanding.

Do you have any air quality regulations in Syracuse to deal with?? Here in socal, if someone built a setup like that and a neighbor or someone else reported it, the South Coast AQMD (air quality management district) would have you for lunch. I've done panel painting with a non-HVLP gun (god forbid) in the open garage in the past, but could never consider setting up something like that in the driveway.

You would need to get an air permit to for a spray booth. Unfortunately, even if one were able/willing to pony up the cost and hassle of getting an air permit, that setup would never fly on meeting the requirements.

One of the many benefits of living in socal o[

Well, there are some benefits.... Like it's 80 degrees outside my office right now and clear blue sky.....

that looks like a very good idea careful with the paint on the sides one time I was painting a truck first I sprayed the bed and figured that I would just tape it off to avoid getting dry spots I did not have any paper big enough so I got some plastic bags worked real good for the first coat but when I sprayed the second and the air hit the plastic and gave it a little shake all of the over spay then dry flaked off and kind of screwed up the good paint next to it
