Paint booth intake filters

I recently moved and I have been setting up a new shop area for the past 6 months. my new fan setup i have, I basically have an intake and exhaust fan now. i am using a large furnace fan that is mounted in the apposing room of the garage and will have duct work going to the opposite end of the garage and push air through filters.

my question is, what type of filters would you recommend using? I dont think the fan moves enough air to use a standard downdraft type filter, but I was almost thinking of using just normal furnace filters since I am just filtering clean air through them.

Basically in the picture you can see the lower wall is the exhaust and in the upper portion where the hole is at the top there will be ductwork that goes all the way to the opposite end and there will be fresh air pushed through.

There fan is mounted right on the other side. the. both fans move roughly the same amount of air roughly 3,000 cfm. I may end up adding a second intake fan up on the other side if I feel it will help. Kind of just testing at the moment.

So far with testing the fans out, with both fans on, I pull very very little from the cracks and the side door barely when the door is open. I have a controller on the exhaust fan that allows me to slow it down or speed it up.
