    Put a couple window fans in the garage door, get a cross-flow going. In my experience that cuts down the dust enough.
    I should add I do this for painting but have never bothered for vinyl.. and my garage is filthy.

    That said I'm an amateur expecting amateur results.

    I found vinyl wrapping incredibly fun and relaxing. My version of arts and crafts hour.

    So I think I found my direction. Went to cambridge auto body in waltham ( older fellow, they did my rear wheel well due to some issues and color matched really well)
    to prep the hood , side fenders, blend and paint $700
    with buying a new front bumper for $200 thru his dist. another 100$ to paint.

    so $800 OTD to paint it properly which will cover 80% of the issues. The other chips on the side and rear bumper I can live with and probably just touch up.

    goign to think about it but Im pretty sure that I'll do that vs body prep myself and a Maaco job or time spent me wrapping.

    I don't suppose you asked if they do motorcycle stuff as well..?

    Spending a G to save the car and be happy seems like a reasonable outcome to me.
