Is there such a thing? Weather is crappy now and I need to paint my rig since it is bare metal. Close to sacramento would be a plus ;)

Rent a storage unit if it will fit. Cover the walls and floor with plastic and give it hell.
The only places I have ever heard of renting bays and paint booths is on military installations. You need a military i.d. for that one.

There have been places like this, but the seem to go out of buisness pretty quick. Anyway it is usually more cost effective to do all the prep and have maaco or similar shoot it. Also if you go to an auto body supply store and talk to the guys there usually one of them, or someone they know, has a half assed booth in his garage. These guys will just shoot the car, no body work or prep, for less than you could rent a booth for. Some of them are good painters some aren't.

The vehicle I am painting now has to be factory color and those places have set colors they use.. only.. even if I bring the paint!!

I towed it all prepped to a local place and he quoted me 3k!

Looks like the plastic and the propane heaters are goin up in the garage..
