What have you done? Just spent a long time extending my garage, new roof, doors, painting the floor and walls. Last thing I want to do is open up a spray gun in the garage :) I've seen some portable booths made from plastic piping and fixings. These look quick ane easy to make to contain the overspray. I'm painting my car in celly so happy to rub down and polish, not looking for a mirror finish from the gun.

I sprayed mine in the garage, lined it with thin plastic dust sheet and a tarpaulin.

I did similar, but I built a wooden frame inside the garage as a booth, made a door from cardboard and one panel in each end contained a filter, the inlet filter in picture on right I placed a fan behind and made it positive pressure, the booth filter at other end vented outside when door was opened , I used a oil filled radiator to get a good temperature then took it out before painting, worked very well, the plastic dust sheet for lining is cheap and being static helps attract the dust and overspray,

Did you get Dexter to help you set it up?

I've used a Portable Garage with a Tarp on the floor, similar to this;-

It's just big enough to sensibly do a Mini or a Moke in, possibly say an Escort, but anything bigger would be too hard.

I Bought the cheapest gazebo I could find on Ebay, sheeted out the inside.

all I wanted to do was prevent falling debris and contain the over spray, it worked well for me as you can see from the floor.

Brilliant idea and so much easier than plastic piping, thanks

Good lighting is of course essential.

As we were doing them, the son would do the painting and I'd follow - from in front - with the LED Lighting Stand. No perfect, but we found it quite adequate.
