Re: Isocyanates and painting at home safely

Eventually it will stop snowing here and I will get to painting. For primer I am user the Case anti rust primer and Case reducer. No hardener.
For topcoat I am using Case paint, reducer and....some RM DH46 hardener that I got through a friends dad.
I'm not a painter so my first question is will this hardener work? My friends dad said it will work with this paint, but he has never tried this combo.
Now for safety. I am painting outside and plan on wearing this.

3M 6200 series half mask, 6001 filters and 2097 particulate prefilters. I also will be wearing eye protection and gloves/suit.
I know forced air is best, but being outside I will try to stay upwind!

Re: Isocyanates and painting at home safely

Back to the dosage question re: ISO.
I paint a car, maybe every 3-5 years on average. That is not 3-5 cars a year, but one paint job in 3 to 5 years.
Painting inside with fan providing ventilation and a half mask and using LVLP gun. No visible mist hangs in the air ( unlike the first time I used a Binks 7--and could barely find the door!)
62 years old, and no symptoms to date.
How would you evaluate the risk?
