When working with automotive paint it is important to use NIOSH approved equipment to save your body from harm. Fumes and particles in the air can cause permanent damage to your lungs and nervous system if exposed repeatedly or for a long period of time. Solvents are detectable in the blood within seconds of contact with the skin and areas that are moist such as the nose and eyes are prime areas for chemicals to do damage. This is why using the proper safety equipment and taking precautions is just as important to the project as the vehicle itself.
