Was getting dust and hard to clean such a large area, so we started to redesign the outlet area

Realised it was beyond my knowledge set the airflows in the booth, so contacted a company to be able to order in a exhaust wall.

Was told, hallway is not allowed to be attached to booth, was told wooden floor with vinyl covering is non compliant, was told no air switch fitted to doors was non compliant, and quite a large list.

So paint booth was permanently closed 4 months ago.

Ordered a new booth in, just finished setting it up and painted my first guitar in 4 months.....yay

You guys that paint with no paint booths, take my hats off to you, its hard to paint dust free without a controlled enviroment

Too much, being commercial district I do not have a choice.

But to answer your question, if you buy it in australia it willcost you the price of a new suv, excess of 30k, if you buy from china its 1/3 that cost but lots of work is really needed to bring chinese one up to scratch, (I went with chinese one)
