How do you keep dust from settling on such a large piece, do you have a spray booth big enough?

Hi, yes I'm doing quite a few resprays for the same customer at the moment, all 1/8 metal bodies. I have constructed a much bigger spray Booth for these models. It's nothing special, but it has an air in and air out vents both with small extraction fans. Does the job and limits almost all dust getting through, but I'm sanding between each coat so if any does get through that clears it prior to the next coat.
