inflatable spray booth

#1
I'm outgrowing my home garage spray booth. I can get space in a warehouse fairly cheap and am considering an inflatable spray booth. Has anyone used one? What brand? Pros and cons?
Thanks.

I briefly considered one of these but came to the conclusion that the lighting would likely be inadequate. Probably ok for panel repairs.

I had one for few years. Used to do mobile autobody outside. Hardest part was setup time outside. Used to paint when it was snowing, high winds, or 100 degree days.

Works well, just setup was annoying.

You have a warehouse, so let's say 1000 square feet, Id park the car in the dead center to paint and get as clean of a job as any $200,000 downdraft paint booth.
Size of area equals clean and the inflatable ones are just too small and most have a static problem when the air is going through.

The inflatable I was looking at is $10-11K, not really practical especially if I don't need the mobility of it. There are some stationary used ones in the area for $5-7K.

5-7k or 10k? Shoooot...haven't priced 2x4's sheetrock & white paint lately but inflatible wouldn't be my choice.
If you can rent corner, 2 walls are up already. DIY air system. Depends on owner i suppose.
He'd have a nice enclosed section when u leave.

Back when I started, I sprayed in an old dirt floor welding shop. I would wet the floor down well, let everything settle, and shoot. Most times I used lacquer for small repairs, but I also did completes with enamel. The big open wet area seemed to attract dust. I’m still amazed at the quality achieved in such an environment.
