Need a Heated Place for Spray Painting

I needed to do some quick spray painting on some parts, but the temps outside are below 10 degrees celcius pretty much everyday on the 14-day forecast so that means the paint will look like crap if I do it in my garage.

I was wondering if anybody knows a place or has a place that's above 10 degrees C that I could use for an hour or so to spray paint some small objects. I'm willing to pay a rental fee or provide parts/services in exchange.

I picked up a 30 000 BTU forced air heater from XS Cargo about 6 years ago for $60. It drinks propane but I work on my car a lot in the winter, it may be -5 outside but my garage is +20

Suggest picking up a heater and having the conveinience of a warm garage in the winter. It's so worth it.

Turbo swap at your place this christmas break then??? LOL

A +20 garage would just lead to me wasting more time in there LOL, I really need to stay out of there and the winter at least helps me with that .

You pulled your turbos in your garrage?
I wanted to install new turbos, but I don't have the cojones to do the jobs just yet haha.

FINALLY! Someone in the community puts up a lift haha. I really wish you were around this past summer, I destroyed a ligament in my right hand and dislocated a couple carpals trying to do everything on my garage floor LOL.

PM incoming

When you get that lift I will give you some ideas of things that can be done to the car with some creativity. I have a lot of wacky ideas haha.

hahaha I know. I'm just as excited to get this beauty all set up once it arrives. I HATE working on the car when its on the ground on jacks, I swear you loose a year of life from how it is on your body when your under the car on the driveway.

Dr. G - PM replied. You have the details, send me a text.

lol c'mon guys, working on ramps isnt so bad. I only need a lift for the bigger things, turbos, engine, tranny, subframes, etc so this opportunity will surely be useful at some point.
