it boils down to ( IF ) you are sensitive to it.

IF you are sensitive to it. I hear even smelling the fumes from an hour after painting can put you in the hospital.

if you are not sensitive to it.. then you can paint with it outside with no (noticeable ) ill effects.

FWIW.. I use to use the valspar hardner.. but have switched to the nason quik cure. same $ and it dries faster...

I paint open air, outside. While I'd like to get supplied air.. I have not yet. if I keep painting as much as I have been over the last 15 ys.. i SHOULD.

I also imagine age and overall pulminary function plays a role. IE.. a young guy with good lungs and is not sensitive.. he may get away with it for decades.

take an older guy or a smoker.. and who may or may not be sensitive to it.. and you might find bad / dangerous results.

You may not be sensitive to it now and paint a dozen tractors outside. take a break for a few years and come back and have it knock you out.. etc.

if you THINK you might be sensitive or have existing pulminary issues.. I'd be on the safe side.

Bad stuff. I have gotten away with painting 2 truck, I had one of them so long I got to do it again so 3 if you count that. My '66 mustang and various fenders from deer hits etc on vehicles over the years. I never got sick from a charcoal mask but fear I will next time. I read awhile back that the hardner mess is cumulative like carbon monoxide. You can get some today and some a few days later etc. It build up and takes awhile to get out of your system. I realized that even after a few days of painting that I did not feel real well. I'm going to look for one of those hobby air deals before starting any more paint jobs. It is rewarding to take a vehicle from start to finish in paint...but not worth a life or a kidney transplant or even a liver from poisoning.
