If no flammable finish spraying, not required
I had the same issue in my town. The body shop owner claimed only water based spray paint. He also did not want to install protection in the booth.
I stated to the owner, I wanted a letter from him stating he will not be spraying any form of flammable paint in the booth in the future as long as the booth is not protected. The letter was for me to lay it on record for him, in case I catch them in the future using flammable paint in the booth. This locks him for only using water based paint.
He did not want to produce me a sign letter...so the owner ended up protecting the spray booth.
Bobby, Great idea I will do the same.

It was always my understanding the water based paint contained some flammable components. In our area any paint booth is always protected as there is always the possibility that solvents will be used at some point.
