Spray can says to spray only above 60F but it won't get above 40 for a few days. Need to do a set of wheel covers. Will have to do it down in the basement. Quickly and holding my breath as long as possible. Any other options?

Wear a respirator or dust mask? I spray painted my Sienna door handle inside during the winter. Get lots of drop cloths or cardboard.

What about going to an underground garage to get this done? Get on the lowest level you can. It should be warmer than 40 degrees inside.

What about quickly painting outside and then 'immediatly' bringing the Wheel Covers inside ?

If you paint in the basement, make some type of spray-booth out of cardboard and use plenty of 'plastic' drop-cloths.

Last time I spray painted in the basement, it gave my Furnace a yellow flame (should be blue).
A few days later, the fumes dissipated and flame returned to blue.

Spraying 2-3 coats of paint and then another of clear would be pain for just one let alone four.

How does a respirator mask work? Aren't you breathing in the same air you just exhaled if that thing is over your face? Or is there a mouthpiece you suck on when exhaling?

No, there is a one-way valve in the face piece that allows you to exhale. Any incoming air passes through the absorbent material in the canisters.

You 100% without a doubt need a respirator. They're like $15-20 online or at Home Depot. And prepare for the whole house to smell like paint for several days. There's no possible way to keep the smell contained to just the basement. I only say this because if you live with other people, they WILL complain. smile

Yea, I know the place will smell like a meth lab. Not the first time doing it, or baking calipers in the oven for that matter.

I would never spray aerosol paint inside the house. We don't have a basement, but it sounds like the perfect way to see your name on a darwin awards website. Much like driving with your eyes closed, it only takes once to realize what a bad idea it was.

do you have a shop vac. Make spray booth out of box. Hose in back to shop vac sitting outside.

Wear respirator. Harbor freight sells pretty decent one for $30 ish with coupon.

I've sprayed a few things outdoors, then brought inside where it was warmer. Rarely though. IMO I'm not interested in any amount of financial gain that requires me to smell spraypaint for days on end.

If you have a garage then try it out there. Otherwise... wait for spring or the next warm day. Or maybe you have a friend's garage (or house or basement) that you could do this in?

You can bring everything outside for a few minutes just to spray paint it (so your paint and objects to be painted are warm enough). That's only part of the problem. The off gassing from the painted objects will still stink up your basement. Now if your basement is big enough, and the objects are small enough, sure.

Can you create a spray space in the bathroom? You could turn on the vent fan.

Probably not. The spray mist would likely get everywhere.

I've sprayed on SprayMax 2K clear in the garage a while ago. Not ideal, certainly won't do it again without some kind of forced air(isocyanates). Maybe next time when I get my scuba certification, I'll wear a pony bottle and my regs since I have a feeling I need to restore my headlights in the spring.

The problem with consumer level aerosols is all the overspray and they have a sucky transfer ratio compared to a real spray gun. The SprayMax and U-Pol aerosols due to a spray gun-like fan tip and higher pressurization spray almost like an HVLP spray gun.

Rust-Oleum is now coming out with their "turbo" spray can which promises spray gun like results but the can looks unwieldy. I saw one at Home Depot filled with Zinsser primer. https://www.rustoleum.com/pages/turbo-spray

You'll still get a few warm days. You'll just need to wait. Remember a few weeks ago when it was 75?
