The Final Coats of Paint

On Friday evening, May 7th we made an attempt to put on the final two coats of semi-gloss black paint. We carefully sanded all five fascia with 320 grit sandpaper and smoothed out the last imperfections. We then applied two thin coats of paint, waited about 1 hour, and applied two more. The next morning we checked and found that most of the fascia looked great, but two had a lot of dust settled into the paint. Alas, we need to sand and paint them once again and build something that will prevent the dust.

We have found a couple of possible resources to help us with the final paint problem for example:

We do not have the time to produce anything too sophisticated, and with the exception of the Thunder Subwoofers, we don't think we will be painting very much. As a result, we have decided to build a simple one-use-only painting station. So check back and see what we came up with.
