I’ve seen guys use wedding tents before. Wet the floor down and watch for bugs
Almost tempted to spray my cars myself too someday. People around here want $10k/car

When I did the front face of my rims I used the wet the floor trick, well wet the parking lot:

Rectangle Wood Road surface Automotive tire Asphalt


I wet the ground for 40 feet each way, laid a shower curtain down, then pinned the corners with rocks, put a board down and primed/painted the rim putting a cardboard cover on it in between coats to keep the moisture and bugs out. Note the open corner of the card board to allow out-gassing.

Worked pretty well. No bugs in the paint and no dust thrown up because of the water down.
That's Tramclad Semi-gloss by the way.
