Its nice to read and contribute to a post that you can actually learn from. Most of the stuff I learn is by trial and error, but Marty has pointed out some great advice that a typical backyard painter would never know and could benifit from. Good luck in your project, Chuck, I'm sure it will turn out top notch!
Thanks All-ryze.
I try to not get too passionate about some things.
But I've been in the body and paint business for more years then I care to think about.
I've been told before that I'm a real "knuckle dragging motorhead".
And My reply has always been"Yeah.. So.. What's your point?"
Hopefully I'll never steer you guy's wrong, but it can happen..

I'm probably wrong, but I would wet everything except the car, open a main door and stick a fan sucking the air out of the garage. Oh and if you have a gas heater in the garage make sure you shut the gas off to it before you spray

Here's how I made my make-shift booth in the garage.

Lined the walls and the ceiling with plastic painters drop cloth, then layed down a 15x20 blue tarp on the floor. Placed a fan (Blowing out) in the window of the back of the garge and placed furnace filters along the bottom of the garage door opening and closed the door on top of the filters. Used a garden pressure sprayer to mist down the floor with water.

Worked real well to keep dust to a minimum!

What everyone has said about area cleaning is very good advice.
That will help keep down some of the dirt.
Here's another little tip.
The majority of the dirt that is in a paint job comes from 2 places.
#1 the car
#2 The person painting the car.

A good cleaning of the car, followed by a thorough tight mask, will reduce the chance of dirt coming there.
Wear a disposable paint suit if possible, if not make sure ythe clothes you are wearing is free of lint
