I do not have a spay booth and have to spray paint in the back yard. Those of you who do the same, do you have any tricks that would allow you to spray on a windy day? Or do you just wait for a calm day?

I usually just wait til the evening, winds usually calm down some here. All though I have tried spraying in between gusts, didn't work out so well.

Good luck,

I have used a canopy from walmart and used a tarp around it .or you can just make something and rap it with plastic.that should work.

What I did several years ago was build a frame out of PVC pipe that I can take apart/assemble when needed and I hang clear shower curtains on it to enclose it. Just drill holes near the bottom of the legs for stakes and I put grommets in the bottom corners of the shower curtains to bungee them in place so they don't blow around.
