Well, I've finished the glove box/paint booth and thought I'd share what I've done. I was hoping to keep the cost around $100 but that was a pipe dream. It wound up being about $240. The size is 2' deep by 3' wide.

I mounted an air filter I had left over from 1:1 work in line with the air regulator. The on/off switch is located next to it. The hose connects through the bottom of the booth on the right side.

The air filter is from WM. I mounted it on the top.

The exhaust port in the bottom is a plumbing piece as are the flanges I used to mount the gloves to the front. I'm using the gloves that veterinarians use for birthing calves. Nice and thin, but one size fits all so they're loose on my hands. To get them to fit tight, I put a vinyl glove on over each one.

The exhaust is 3” all the way. I used 3” I. D./3” O.D. automotive fittings in order to be able to connect and disconnect things quickly.

The hose from the booth connects to a 3” O. D. section mounted in the wall.

Here's the exhaust fan/power supply and hoses all hooked up on the other side of the wall.

I mounted it on an old kitchen chair. The exhaust fan is a 100 CFM bilge pump which is safe for combustible fumes. My brother in law gave me the power supply. He works on computers for a living.

The hose goes from the pump to a device I fabricated. It fits under the garage door and will keep the critters out at the bottom (wifes requirement). Again I used some 3” O. D.

The whole thing can be connected and ready to paint in less than 5 minutes.
No nasty fumes and no respirator needed. I've used it once and there was no junk in the paint job. Now I've just got to learn to paint!
