    not likely buddy. a paint booth is both huge and expensive to operate. thats why body shops have them, and people working out of their garage dont.

    there may be some places you can RENT, but you'd be hard pressed to find some everyday joe with a booth.

    There's some guys down in Ogden, I think they're called Zuly's. They're just off of Ogden Rd. I rented their booth for 100 bucks a couple years ago. It's a pretty lousy booth, poor light etc, but if you're just doing a bumper it should be fine.

    The problem with a garage is dust. It shows up in the paint and looks like ass. Unless you have a good exhaust fan hooked up it's almost impossible to get rid of it. That's the point of the booth. But if you have to paint in your garage somtimes soaking the place with water helps keep the dust down.

    adding flake is not a tri stage paint job.

    if you have very little to no paint experience especially with tri stage (if thats what it is) i recommend taking it to professionals or learn the hard way.

    sorry dude, not trying to cut you down, but candys are very difficult colors to spray.

    but for sure post some pics of your car.

    u-wrench in Calgary also rents out their paint booth at quite a reasonable cost. I haven't been there to see the conditions though. I was told it is a proper well-lit downdraft booth.
