Dan, my garage is designed for two cars but I would not be able to put one more bicycle in there and also there are no radios in there (yet). That’s why I do the spay jobs outside. I actually never did a console yet. I choose days when there is not too much wind, adequate temperature and humidity. As I said, I am still in a learning process. I definitely got better results with the spray gun. The idea beeing thinner rather than thicker lacquer but I still have a lot to experiment before I am satisfied with the results. The last cabinet I did last year is not too bad. I have a cabinet ready for lacquer finish and it will probably be the only one this year. The spray gun is a lot more trouble than cans and it will take me a few more cabinets to master its use.
