This is where I am so far.

First I had to transform my Bathroom into a paintbooth as you can see by the pictures (I'm surprised my wife didnt kick me out).

Then it all started.

First it was the filler primer followed by a lot of dry sanding and wet sanding).

I do live in a condo and that is the bathroom, lucky for me I have two bathrooms.

Sometime you have to do with what you have in order to get the job done.

i reside in a condo to. I turned the spare empty room into a paint booth for the mirage. cardboard on the floors plastic on the walls, same as you. I have used the bathroom once before. your better off leaving the exhaust fan OFF. turning it on helps circulate the paint around the room instead of it just falling and settling in the shower area.

just remember to try and wear your respirator!!

i finished mine last night. put the factory turky stickers on it for now. havent seen any israeli stickers around.

I really like the color scheme your doing. should look really nice when completed!
