    That's cool, but I kept wanting to get some of that seafoam green for a guitar build I have going on.

    That's exactly how my spray setup looks. Except for the minor detail about the overspray going out into the driveway.

    very cool. My dad made his career as a car painter - I wish I had some home builds back then.....but alas he painted my first vehicle and a couple of pine wood derbys

    Not sure I’d want to be the guy who has to skim the paint in that tank.Unless it all gets dumped. I prefer not to think about it.

    This was my first thought. Paint goes into the water... and then what?

    Water booths are commercially sold units that have to meet air quality and OSHA requirements.

    Even smaller benchtop units have a water filtration system so the same water can circulate; the filters themselves are easily removed, packaged and set aside.

    There's a tank drainage pump system for water/coating mix that is thick and doesn't get through the filter. It's periodically drawn off into 5 gallon containers or drums and picked up by a licensed hazardous waste hauler.along with the used-up filters.

    The high-volume production lines have large enclosed areas with robotic spray systems and dry filtration. There are no applicators at all.
