Painting booth/garage to rent?

Anyone know of a building/shop in central IA to borrow/rent that would be suitable to use for painting a school bus? Preferably around Des Moines, Ankeny, Ames, etc...

We're working on the conversion of our bus to a RAGBRAI support vehicle. Will be needing to paint sometime in the next couple months. The best option we have right now is a barn with a dirt floor. The problems there are pretty obvious...

Thanks!

What he says. Lay some plastic around the bus to walk on and wet everything else down to control the dust.

I don't know of anyplace in Central Iowa, but I will soon be needing the same thing. I'm getting a bus soon and will need to find some place to paint and/or store it.

Let me know if you dig up anyplace. I'll keep my eyes open too.

You could give a call to CyRide, long shot but, they have their own booth and paint their buses often. I actually know a guy who got his bus painted there but he either knows someone there or works there.
