Today I had a great idea for a very cheap and very effective way of improving my spraying conditions and not getting in the way of everyone. This is a rough paint sketch of my plan.



The guitar body would hang inside it from some kind of hanging mechanism. (Any suggestions?) The crossbar is so that before you spray, you rest the body off that bar to spray the bottom then wait for it to dry and spray the rest. You can access the top and all sides freely simply by moving around. When done, you strap the wooden roof back down or velcro down the tarpaulin tarp on top. (Which do you reckon?) And where there are red lines (also on other sides) there are rolled up tarps which velcro or button down to the floor. Then you lift the whole shebang into a corner and you have a dusttight, compact chamber.

Good eh?

I'll photograph the whole process.

Suggestions?

Maybe string some wire horizontally so that you can a guitar either by the bolt on holes or through the tuning peg holes.

undbend a coat hanger and put it through 1 of the tuning machines, it can hang off of that

That kind of thing yeah. And the reason I'm making this is because my drying guitars constantly get in the way of my dad. Especially coats which are left for a long time. I don't know how clear the drawing made it but this will be only about twice the thickness of a guitar to minimize space. I'll stick a pic up of what it will look like with the tarps down in just one minute.

I thought for a minute, and I think that you should rig up some fans. Like the kind that they put in computers and in PS2's. That way, you can clear out fumes and any paint droplets in the cube's environment... and that way, the paint wont become grainy on the guitar and make it easier for you.

yea he beat me to it cause i was thinking ether it not the best for it, or it may take longer to dry if it's sitting in it's own fumes so rig some fans to suck them out

Yeah, you'll need forced ventilation in that thing for sure. And while your at it you coudl rig up a dehumidifier, and a heater, to adjsut the heat and humidity to best possible conditions.

^and lights, so you can see it easily!

If hes going to add fans he should use explosion proof fans, the same goes with lights and switches. If hes going to do that he may as well build a proper spray booth that meets local requirements from safety. Just building something to hold the bodies and necks maybe the best way to go for the time being.

I want a spray booth

You're just asking for poor curing properties of your finishes, and honestly your best bet would to turn this idea into a heat box, and use it to hang your guitars in to cure. Spray somewhere where the solvents can evaporate and move around, keeping everything boxed in is a bad idea, and you'll end up with sticky paint.
